Edinburgh have signed former Sale Sharks back-row Cameron Neild on a short-term deal.


The 28-year-old has been recruited with immediate effect after number eight Ben Muncaster was ruled out until mid-October due to a knee injury sustained in training.

With Scotland trio Jamie Ritchie, Hamish Watson and Luke Crosbie and Fijian number eight Bill Mata also unavailable due to the upcoming Rugby World Cup, Edinburgh’s recently-appointed senior coach Sean Everitt is delighted to have brought Neild to the Hive Stadium ahead of the new United Rugby Championship campaign, which gets under way in October.

“With so many back-row players unavailable due to the Rugby World Cup, and now with Ben’s unfortunate injury, we felt it was vital to bring in an experienced campaigner who could hit the ground running,” Everitt told the Edinburgh website.

“With over a century of appearances for Sale Sharks, Cameron has clocked up a lot of rugby for someone still relatively young.

“He’ll be an excellent addition to the squad on a short-term deal, providing cover and supplementing our talented back-row group.”

After ending his long association with Sale last summer, Neild started last season with Worcester and then joined Glasgow in November following the English club’s financial implosion last autumn.
