Edinburgh snap up Ben Atiga

Edinburgh have confirmed the signing of Ben Atiga on a two-year contract.

The 28-year-old back, who has represented New Zealand, will join the capital club from Super 15 side the Highlanders ahead of next season.

Atiga won his sole cap for the All Blacks in 2008, and has also played for the Blues.

"He is a very impressive package of agility, power and skill," said coach Michael Bradley.

"He has proven his ability on some of the toughest stages in world rugby."
