Former Scotland wing and Edinburgh stalwart Simon Webster, whose contract was due to expire at the end of the season and has been plagued by injuries in recent seasons, has left the capital club by mutual consent.
Absent from playing duties for two seasons with an Achillies injury the 31-year-old returned to full fitness in September but has been unable to dislodge the prolific Tim Visser and new Scotland international Lee Jones who had stepped up during his time out.
"It's been a tough year for me having finally got myself fit but unable to secure first team action and I felt that the timing was right for me to leave the club and seek out new playing opportunities," said Webster.
Webster's Edinburgh career began in 2002 and he made 127 appearances, scoring 34 tries, while in 37 Scotland appearances between 2003 and 2009 he scored eight tries.
Notable international highlights include starting all five of Scotland’s World Cup matches in 2007 (the only player to do so), twice lifting the Calcutta Cup (2006 and 2008), and helping Scotland defeat Argentina in Buenos Aires in 2008.
