**New Signing**
Melrose Rugby are delighted to confirm the signing of Grant Shiells from London Scottish. Grant and the returning Nick Beavon (Edinburgh Rugby) will add a wealth of experience to our squad and play important roles in the development of our front row players. We are very fortunate to have quality props on both sides of the scrum with the exciting Scotland u20's Dan Elkington, currently continuing his development over the summer at the Western Province Academy in South Africa and Ruari McLeod who had an excellent season on the tight side. Whilst Grant may only be 27, his 8yrs of professional experience in Pro 12 and English Premiership Rugby will be invaluable as we continue to develop exciting props, Ben McLean and Callum Crookshanks who have already shown their ability at 1st XV level, Jack Dobie about to enter his first year of senior rugby, and the talented Jake Fairlie who is involved with the Scottish U16 Squad.

The addition of Grant to a settled squad who are ambitious to improve whets the appetite for what will be an exciting and highly competitive new season.
