Roddy Grant has vowed to restore Edinburgh's fortunes after signing a new deal with the RaboDIrect PRO12 club.

The back-row forward, 26, has pledged his future to the club until the summer of 2015 despite a disappointing campaign so far.

Edinburgh lost all six of their Heineken Cup fixtures this term and are currently languishing in 10th place in the PRO12 table with just four wins in 16 matches.

"This season has been difficult and disappointing from a performance perspective, but there's a real sense of urgency among the players and the club to finish this season strong and start the process of getting back to where we believe we can be," said Grant, who has made 87 appearances since making his debut in 2009.

"Edinburgh Rugby is my club and I do everything I can, on and off the pitch, to help drive things on, and am excited about what we can achieve in the next two seasons.

"There are some great young players coming through the ranks and bursting onto the international scene. There's huge potential."

"There are some great young players coming through the ranks and bursting onto the international scene. There's huge potential.

"I'm still looking to improve my own game and feel that Edinburgh is a great place to do that alongside some great players in a good environment, and in the shop window for Scotland selection, which is obviously a huge goal of mine.

"But first, as a team and a club, we need to rectify an unacceptable season.

"It's a real challenge and great source of motivation, it's something I care a lot about and am delighted to be part of it for another two years."
