Edinburgh Rugby have signed the brother of record try-scorer Tim Visser on a training development contract.

Sep Visser will stay with Premier 1 side Boroughmuir but will be available for selection for the capital side.

The 20-year-old has scored three tries in five games from full-back after joining Boro from Tynedale.

"The opportunity to train at Murrayfield is massive for me, especially at 20 years old," he said.

"It's really good for my skill and strength development to train full-time.

"Tim has done really well here, he's improved a lot as a player since coming to Edinburgh and has always said the set-up here is great, which is one of the main reasons I want to train with, and ultimately play for, Edinburgh Rugby."

Dutchman Tim is also delighted to see his sibling join the club and is glad to see him settle in Scotland.

"I'm very happy for Sep. He's been working really hard off the pitch and in his trials with Edinburgh Rugby, so I'm delighted that he's getting the chance to prolong the opportunity to train full-time and get the benefit of the excellent facilities at the club," he said.

"It's brilliant for him and great for me to have my brother settled here in Scotland.

"He's becoming a really good player and I can see a lot of me in him. He's a big strong ball carrier and I'm grateful that he's been given this chance."
