Visser set for Scotland call-up

Tim Visser, Edinburgh's prolific Dutch winger, is set to earn selection for Scotland's summer tour in 2012, head coach Andy Robinson has confirmed.

The 24-year-old, known as the Flying Dutchman, has scored five tries in eight RaboDirect PRO12 matches this season, following 14 last term and 10 the previous season and will next summer qualify for Scotland through residency.

Visser is then set to travel to Australia, Samoa and Fiji with Scotland, Robinson confirmed in a fans' Twitter question and answer session on Tuesday.

Robinson said: "Tim qualifies in June and yes, if fit, he will be considered for the southern hemisphere tour."
