A FORMER Whitecraigs rugby prop has had a dream come true this week — he has been called into the Scotland squad for the six nations.

Ed Kalman, who played at the West Lodge club since he was eight years old also played for Glasgow schools while a pupil at Belmont House.

Prior to joining Glasgow Warriors, he spent two seasons with Glasgow’s under-20 team and also played club rugby in England and with Borders Reivers.

At 29 years old, it is the Cambridge university graduate’s first foray into the senior Scotland set-up, despite winning 12 caps for Sotland A.

The news follows a fine performance from against Leinster in the Heineken Cup on Sunday and now the former physics student is set to join up with the squad for a training camp in St Andrews next week.

He received the call up after his Warriors team-mate, Moray Low, was ruled out of the start of the championship with a knee injury.
