Edinburgh have extended the contract of 24-year-old Scotland international full-back Greig Tonks until 2015.
The former Northampton Saints full-back signed in the summer of 2012 and went on to become one of the club's most consistent performers, scooping both the Player and Players' Player awards.
An ever-present in the Edinburgh Rugby back-line, he started all but two possible matches for the club (26/28 games) before earning his first senior cap on Scotland's 2013 summer tour of South Africa.
Having settled into the city, Tonks expressed his delight at putting pen to paper and set his sights on bringing success to the capital.
"I came to Edinburgh Rugby intent on playing as much as possible and hoping to pursue an international career with Scotland so, on personal level, my time here has gone really well," said Tonks.
"I was happy to achieve my goals in a pretty whirlwind year, so it was an obvious decision for me to try and stay as long as possible, even before the club opened the talks to extend my contract.
"Naturally I'm keen to get more game time for Scotland after getting my first cap but it's really important to me to have good season with Edinburgh.
"As a team we need to perform better. There's a lot happening behind the scenes to get excited about and hopefully this time next year we'll be looking back on a better year."
"We have been very impressed with Greig [Tonks]," said Edinburgh managing director David Davies.
"He had a very good debut season at the club and we were delighted to watch him get his first Scotland cap in the summer.
"He's a genuine talent and individual, and the kind of bright young player that we want to develop at this club."
