Edinburgh Rugby today completed the signing of loosehead prop Nick Auterac who joined the capital club ahead of the 2022/23 season.
Auterac made the move north this summer after leaving English Premiership side Northampton Saints, whom the experienced prop initially joined in 2020.
The former Saracens, Bath and Harlequins front-rower was named in the Scotland squad for last year’s cancelled Sumer Tests and now readies himself for what he calls ‘an extremely exciting next chapter’ north of the border.
A graduate of Saracens academy – during which period the prop enjoyed loan spells at both London Scottish and Bedford Blues – Auterac made the move to Bath in 2014 where he played a major role in helping the West Country side reach the 2015 Premiership Final.
The prop made 46 appearances in four seasons at The Rec before returning to London where he signed for Harlequins in 2018.
Following two years at The Stoop, the former Mill Hill School pupil made the move to Northampton in 2020 during Premiership Rugby’s COVID-19 enforced hiatus.
With 19 appearances in the black, green and gold, Auterac will now play his rugby outwith England for the very first time and the prop is relishing the exciting new challenge of the URC.
The prop made his debut from the bench against Zebre Parma in October 2022, instantly winning two scrum penalties when he took to the field.
