Duo depart Edinburgh Rugby
Edinburgh Rugby have reached a mutual agreement to release scrum-half Nic Groom and hooker Sam Kitchen with immediate effect to pursue playing opportunities elsewhere, with their contracts not scheduled for renewal at the end of the season.
Groom, 31, has made 22 appearances for the capital club since he arrived from Super Rugby side, Lions, in 2019, and will see out the season in England.
Kitchen, 27, will return to his native Australia having made two appearances since joining from FOSROC Super6 outfit Ayrshire Bulls in June last year.
Edinburgh Rugby would like to thanks the players for the hard work and commitment to the club and wish them all the very best for the next chapter in their careers.
