As speculation intensifies over whether Mike Blair will pursue his rugby career away from Edinburgh next season, one of the scrum halves who would be left behind has re-affirmed his commitment to the Capital club.
Ex-Sale Sharks ace Chris Leck, who has been named in the Edinburgh team to face Newport Gwent Dragons in tomorrow’s RaboDirect Pro 12 clash at Murrayfield, last week agreed a two-year contract extension which will keep him at the club until 2014. He said: “I have enjoyed it from as soon as I came up (from England). After the first block of games I was loving it. It was a no- brainer to re-sign for the club.”
The Six Nations period has seen Leck start the last four Edinburgh games and he adds: “The style Edinburgh play is brilliant. It’s fast, expansive; not just kick-it-down-the-throat.”
Meanwhile, asked by the Evening News last November about his next move when his contract expired, Blair said: It’s always at the back of your mind – but there’s nothing to report yet.”
