Roddy Grant

Club centurion and former back-row talisman Roddy Grant was the final appointment to Richard Cockerill’s Edinburgh coaching team ahead of the 2017/18 season.

Grant stepped up from his position in the Fosroc Scottish Rugby Academy to the role of Assistant Forwards Coach, to work under the tutelage of Head Coach Cockerill, with Attack Coach Duncan Hodge and Defence Coach Calum MacRae already confirmed in their positions.

A fully-committed and unrelenting back-row in his prime, Grant’s expertise at the breakdown and in contact has been showcased in Edinburgh’s defensive record, whilst the coach signed a new contract with the club, keeping him in the capital until at least 2021.
