Versatile back-five player Murray Douglas returned to his hometown team on a short-term deal following three years in Australasia, featuring for a series of Super Rugby sides.

The 29-year-old former Heriot’s, Kirkcaldy and Aberdeen Grammar re-joins Edinburgh, for whom he has already made one appearance - against Cardiff Blues in 2012.

Douglas has previously turned out for Super Rugby sides Melbourne Rebels, Wellington Hurricanes and Brumbies.

Having come through the ranks at local side Kirkcaldy, Douglas joined Aberdeen Grammar in 2008 whilst he studied Law at Aberdeen University.

Douglas returned south to the capital in 2012 to take up a Law traineeship with a local firm and joined Tennent’s Premiership side, Heriot’s.

The second-row captained the Scotland Club XV against Ireland and France in 2014 and helped Heriot’s lift the Scottish Cup in 2015 before making the move to Melbourne, Australia.

After joining the Rebels development side, Melbourne Rising, Douglas made his mark in the Dewar Shield before making a handful of appearances for the AAMI Park outfit during the 2016/17 Super Rugby season.

A strong Mitre 10 Cup campaign in 2017 saw him pick up a contract with Wellington-based side, Hurricanes, for whom he made his debut against the Bulls in Pretoria. He went onto make seven appearances for the Hurricanes in 2018.

Douglas joined Brumbies at the start of the current campaign and made his debut from the bench in the 29-26 defeat to Rebels at AAMI Park.
