Happy: Alan Solomons

Edinburgh have revealed that trialists Sam Beard and Carl Bezuidenhout have put pen to paper on deals at the club until 2016 and 2015 respectively.

Centre Beard, who has played 13 times since arriving from ITM Cup side Bay of Plenty late last year, scored against the Ospreys in February.

"This is very good news for the club. Sam's a good bloke, a good team man and has fitted in very well here," Alan Solomons told Edinburgh.

"He [Beard] has got very good feet and has a good natural feel for the game.

"I think he has the potential to play a big part in our squad in the coming seasons."

Meanwhile, Bezuidenhout initially joined on a four-month trial midway through the campaign from South African side the Pumas, with Solomons having been impressed by what he's seen.

"Carl's versatility offers a great deal to us. He is equally comfortable at fly half, full-back and wing, and is an outstanding kicker, from hand and off the floor," he said.

"He's endured a tough couple of months, having joined straight from a strenuous Currie Cup winning season, and I feel that he deserves this opportunity to prepare appropriately and play a full season in order to show what he can do."
