The 25-year-old signed a full time contract with Edinburgh in 2008.

He made 48 appearances for the club; however, his time in the capital was marred by injury.

"I really enjoyed my time at Edinburgh, I wish them all the best," Turnbull told the club website.

In 2006, the 6ft 7in lock joined Edinburgh as a youth player.
