Edinburgh Rugby have extended the deals of stand-offs Harry Leonard and Gregor Hunter for two years, keeping the pair at Murrayfield until 2014.

Both have made seven appearances each for the club, Hunter with a match-winning try in the 19-14 win over Connacht at Murrayfield.

Leonard won man of the match against Treviso to help the club to their first away win of the season.

"They're quality individuals," said Edinburgh coach Michael Bradley.

Both players came through Scottish Rugby's elite development programme via different routes.

Bradley added: "Both players have already displayed a dynamism and flair to create opportunities for the players around them as well as the composure to control games with territorial and positional awareness, well beyond their years.

"At just 19 and 20 this is a crucial stage in their development in the number 10 jersey and I'm sure that they will both benefit from having such a close competitor here at the club."
