Scotland go Dutch with Visser
Scotland have selected Tim Visser among their 28-man squad for the summer tour to Australia, Fiji and Samoa.
The Dutch-born winger is one of five uncapped players called up by coach Andy Robinson for the trip after impressing during his time with Edinburgh. Visser has 43 tries in 74 appearances for the Scottish outfit and has enjoyed a great season, ranking as the leading try-scorer and being named RaboDirect PRO12 Players' Player of the Year. The 24-year-old will become eligible to play for Scotland on June 12 on residency grounds, meaning he will miss the opening Test with Australia and will have to wait for the clash with Fiji on June 16 to pull on a Scotland shirt. Visser was originally signed by Robinson for Edinburgh from Newcastle in 2009 and the Scotland coach is predicting big things on the international stage for the wing. "Tim has got that natural ability to beat somebody and to score tries," he said. "He's shown the potential that we saw in him. He's got better and better and now he's got the international stage to show those skills."
