Last year's RBS Premiership player of the season Richie McIver has joined Edinburgh as back-row cover.
McIver will train with Edinburgh for the remainder of the RaboDirect PRO12 season, with the 25-year-old having impressed during his time at Dundee High.
McIver joins Gala prop Ewan McQuillin in being handed a chance to impressed by interim head coach Stevie Scott.
"We keep tabs on a lot of Scottish Premiership players and, after winning the player of the season award last year, have been well aware of Richie's potential," said Scott.
"He's backed that up with consistently good performances for Dundee this season and so has merited the opportunity to train at Murrayfield and allow us to have a closer look at him for the rest of the season."
