Scotland Sevens have brought in Edinburgh Accies full-back Nyle Godsmark to their squad on a one-year contract on the World Series.

Scotland have brought in Edinburgh Accies full-back Nyle Godsmark to their squad on a one-year contract on the HSBC IRB World Sevens Series.

The 22-year-old, who earned his first cap on the Series at the Gold Coast Sevens in October, joins the squad ahead of December’s Dubai event.

“Since I started playing rugby it has been my goal to play professionally and for my country. So, it was quite emotional when I was first told. I’m absolutely delighted. It is a massive, massive honour,” Godsmark told scottishrugby.org.

“Getting my first taste on the World Series was great, so my next goal is to gain selection for Dubai and South Africa and when I’m given my chance ensure I make an impact.

“Above that though, I want to develop as a player and when your running around everyday with players like Mark Robertson and Scott Riddell and the rest of the squad that really helps.

“I have been fortunate enough to progress here, first making the step up from the Border circuit to the GB7s and then on to international sevens.

“So far I’ve learned your fitness needs to be up there and that your skills are challenged at the top level, for instance every pass has to be crisp and accurate.”
