Godman is Edinburgh hero

Phil Godman

Phil Godman kicked a last-minute drop-goal for Edinburgh to clinch a 27-24 victory over Racing Metro and keep them at the top of Pool 2 in the Heineken Cup.

In a delicately poised group Edinburgh grabbed their second victory on the road to keep the pressure on Cardiff Blues as they hunt for their first quarter-final spot in eight years.

Back-row trio Ross Rennie, Netani Talei and David Denton all crossed as the visitors led for the majority of the game.

But Racing responded with three tries of their own and looked set to share the spoils before Godman struck to clinch only Edinburgh's second victory on French soil.
