Out-of-contract Edinburgh Rugby centre Joaquin Dominguez will hope to put a disappointing stay in the Capital behind him after joining French third tier outfit US Cognac.

The 28-year-old Argentinian joined the BT Murrayfield-based outfit from San Isidiro on a two week trial in September 2013. He displayed enough potential to convince Edinburgh coach Alan Solomons to retain his services, then earned an extension that kept him at the club until the end of last season.

However, he failed to establish himself, making only 13 appearances including six starts and, during his time in Scotland, played most of his rugby in the BT Premiership with Hawick.

Dominguez has now agreed a deal with the ambitious French club, which narrowly escaped slipping into amateur rugby and has made several significant signings ahead of the new French Federal Division One campaign.
