Sean Kennedy and Nathan Fowles extend Edinburgh deals

Scrum-halves Sean Kennedy and Nathan Fowles have put pen to paper on one-year contract extensions with Edinburgh.

Kennedy, 24, has been a regular feature for Edinburgh this season and has accrued 37 appearances in total, having signed his first senior deal with the capital club in 2013.

That same year, he was included in Scotland's RBS 6 Nations training camp and played in Scotland A's triumph over England at Kingston Park.

Fowles, meanwhile, moved to Edinburgh from Sale in February last year and the 22-year-old, who is eligible to represent Scotland through his grandfather, has made 17 appearances for the Guinness Pro12 side.

Head coach Alan Solomons said: "It is terrific news for the club that Sean has decided to stay on with us. He is a talented young Scottish player, who adds great value. He is an excellent team man and a pleasure to coach.

"Nathan has come on leaps and bounds over the past two seasons and I am delighted that he has decided to extend his stay with the club."
