Scotland second-row Jamie Hodgson has signed a new two-year deal with Edinburgh Rugby. 
The 26-year-old has featured in eight games this season, among them starts in United Rugby Championship victories at Dragons and Ulster [A] and the recent win over Scarlets.   

On extending terms, Livingston-born Hodgson said: “I’m thrilled to extend terms with my hometown team. I love the direction we’re moving in as club and it’s a real honour to represent the city and our fans every time I run out at Hive Stadium. 
“Edinburgh is my home, and Edinburgh Rugby is my club. The passion of the supporters here is amazing, and it gives you that extra push on the pitch every week. 
“I'm determined to repay their faith and wear this jersey with pride for the next two years. We've got a talented squad and a quality coaching team, and I truly believe we can achieve something special together. 
“With three crucial games coming up, the support of the Edinburgh fans will be massive as we push for the play-offs. Hopefully I can play my part in what could be a really exciting end to the season.” 
A product of Stewart's Melville College – where he captained the school's first XV –Hodgson came through the club’s pro-academy to make his professional debut against Zebre Parma in October 2018. 
Hodgson made his senior international debut against Tonga at Scottish Gas Murrayfield during the 2021 Autumn Nations Series, and has won five Scotland caps to date.

Hodgson made his 50th Edinburgh Rugby appearance against Sharks last January, and has played 61 games for the capital club.  

Edinburgh head coach Sean Everitt was pleased to have secured the services of the hard-working lock.

The Edinburgh boss added: “Jamie is an important player for us, so naturally we’re delighted to see him agree to a new deal. 
“He is someone that takes a huge amount of pride in representing his hometown team and you can see that every time he takes to the field. 

“Wearing the castle on his chest means a lot to Jamie and we’ve seen that in his performances so far this campaign, where he’s been one of our most committed players. 
“He’s worked really hard to come back from injury and will have a big role to play in the years to come."
