The duo join from Edinburgh and Alan Solomons hopes the move will help "re-energise" Rennie after a long spell out with knee and shoulder injuries. For McInally, he has recently switched to hooker and in a similar manner to Tom Youngs who joined Nottingham on loan back in 2009 to learn the ins and outs of the front-row, Solomons believes the move will help him become accustomed to his new position.
Solomons said: "Stuart's [McInally] loan spell will allow him to continue his development in a new position in a fiercely competitive, and often forward dominated league."
