Edinburgh sign former All Black
Edinburgh have signed the former All Blacks prop David Hewett from Super 12 side Canterbury Crusaders.

Hewett, who appeared 24 times for the All Blacks, has signed a two-year deal.

"I am really looking forward to the experience. I played my second Test for the All Blacks at Murrayfield and really enjoyed it."

Edinburgh head coach Frank Hadden said: "Dave will be a fantastic asset and reflects our ambition to re-establish ourselves in the top clubs in Europe."

Todd Blackadder, the Edinburgh captain, said: "It is great that Edinburgh have secured the services of Dave, who I have played alongside for four years with Canterbury and The Crusaders.

"He has a great work ethic, is an ideal team man and will bring a lot to this club.

"He brings tremendous experience to our front row and we will look for him to help up-skill that area of play. I believe he will be a major positive influence and help push this club towards greater things."
