Edinburgh secured the signing of Scotland international prop Jamie Bhatti on a two year-deal ahead of the 2019/20 campaign.
The 13-times capped internationalist made the switch from rivals Glasgow Warriors following three years at the Scotstoun outfit.
Having come through the ranks at Perthshire side Hillfoots RFC, Bhatti moved onto Tennent’s Premiership side Stirling County, where he progressed through the Bridgehaugh club’s age-grade set-up.
Bhatti – who is a graduate of the Fosroc Scottish Rugby Academy – represented Scotland at under-17, under-18, under-19 and under-20 levels, and lifted the Scottish Cup after joining Melrose ahead of the 2016/17 season.
The international prop made his Warriors debut in a pre-season friendly against Canada A in 2016 and made his competitive debut against Scarlets in the same campaign.
Bhatti received his first call-up to the national team ahead of the 2017 Autumn Tests, coming off the bench in all three games against Samoa, New Zealand and Australia.
His Six Nations debut came in 2018, with the loosehead prop coming off the bench in all five matches as Scotland recorded a third-place finish.
