Godman earns Scotland call
Edinburgh stand-off Phil Godman has been called into the Scotland squad for the opening two games of the RBS 6 Nations Championship.
Godman, whose late drop-goal earned Edinburgh a crucial Heineken Cup victory in Paris against Racing Metro at the weekend, will join the squad in St Andrews when they meet up next week.
The 29-year-old has been brought in because Ruaridh Jackson has not yet returned to match action following the leg injury he suffered during Glasgow's RaboDirect PRO12 match at Llanelli earlier this month.
Godman, who won the last of his 23 caps in the Six Nations against England, always retained hope he could return to the international fold after recovering from a knee injury that kept him out for a year until September.
He told the Scotland rugby website: "You always think about getting back into it for the club but also about playing for Scotland as well.
"It's just great to be back playing for Edinburgh and to be back involved with Scotland."
Scotland begin their campaign at home to England on February 4 before facing Wales in Cardiff eight days later.
