New British and Irish Lion Allan Dell has been handed a fresh two-year contract by Edinburgh.

The Scotland prop was a surprise late call-up to Warren Gatland's squad last week and made his tour debut in the Lions' midweek win over the Chiefs.

Now the 25-year-old South Africa-born forward, who also featured in the Dark Blues recent Test wins over Italy and Australia, has extended his club contract with his capital employers until May 2019.

Lock Anton Bresler, meanwhile, has also committed himself to Edinburgh for a further year.

New Gunners head coach Richard Cockerill said: "I've been impressed with Allan's performances for Scotland on their summer tour and it was pleasing to see him make an impact when he appeared for the Lions."
