Oban pro rugby star Magnus Bradbury is back in training for the new rugby season, which begins later this month.

The Edinburgh back-row will also be hoping to resume his international career when Scotland compete in the autumn international series.

Magnus’s mother, Dee, the new president of Scottish Rugby, said: ‘He is in training and looking forward to getting back into it.

‘He is hoping to be involved in the autumn tests but time will tell on that front.’

Edinburgh’s new season kicks off on Friday August 31 with a trip to Ospreys. The autumn internationals begin on Saturday November 10 against Fiji and continue on the following two Saturdays against South Africa and Argentina.

Magnus joined Edinburgh Rugby on an Academy contract in summer 2014 after impressing as part of the Scotland age-grade set-up.

He made his senior debut in the starting XV against Leinster at the RDS Arena in the Guinness PRO12 in October 2014, and scored his first try for the club in the European Challenge Cup defeat of Agen at BT Murrayfield.

After coming through the national age-grade and sevens systems, Magnus made his full Scotland debut in the 2016 November test victory over Argentina and BT Murrayfield.

He committed to Edinburgh on a three-year deal ahead of the 2017/18 season and made his 50th appearance for the club in the Guinness PRO14 clash with Ulster.

Magnus’s brother Fergus will be playing rugby for Stirling University this coming season, before he takes off in January to Hawaii to continue his studies for a semester.
