EDINBURGH Rugby have decided against continuing to use Myreside as their home venue. 

The Pro14 outfit moved to the George Watson's ground at the start of the campaign, with some high-profile matches like the 1872 Cup being moved back to Murrayfield.

Edinburgh announced in February that they would be returning to the national stadium for the remainder of the season and confirmed on Friday that it will now look elsewhere for a suitable venue for next term.

A club statement read: "Following a review of the partnership between Edinburgh Rugby and George Watson's College, it can be confirmed that Edinburgh Rugby has exercised its option not to continue using Myreside as the club’s home venue.

"The club and the school have enjoyed a very positive relationship since first exploring the feasibility of moving Edinburgh matches to Myreside two years ago. Both sides look forward to continuing that co-operation in the future, with Myreside remaining a potential host venue for future Scottish Rugby representative matches such as the Scotland U20 match against England U20 which took place successfully last Friday.

"Edinburgh Rugby will now continue to develop its ambitious plans for a suitable home venue and will share this vision with supporters as soon as possible."

A move to the back pitches at Murrayfield, where temporary stands would be erected, has been considered as the solution for next season.
