He has dropped out the picture at the capital side and been released so he can find a new club.

Marfo, 29, was capped three times by Scotland during the 2017 autumn Test series.

He made his debut in the 44-38 win over Samoa, then a week later started at loosehead in the thrilling clash with New Zealand at Murrayfield which saw the Scots edged out 22-17.

He kept his place in the side for the final match of the series against Australia and helped Scotland to a memorable 53-24 win. It was a record winning margin for the Scots against the Wallabies and the highest ever points tally for the winning side in the fixture.

London-born Marfo, who joined Edinburgh from Bath in summer 2017, qualified for Scotland through his mother.

Edinburgh said in a statement: "Edinburgh Rugby can confirm that Darryl Marfo has now left the club with immediate effect.

"The move comes following a period in which Marfo, 29, has seen limited playing time and today’s decision is aimed at allowing the prop to find a new club."

Marfo made just 11 appearances for the capital side.

Edinburgh coach Richard Cockerill, said: “We thank Darryl for his hard work during his time at the club and we wish him all the best moving forward.”
