Scotland have called up Glasgow's uncapped prop Ed Kalman for the opening two games of the 2012 Six Nations.
Kalman's Warriors' team-mate Moray Low is struggling with injury ahead of their first clash of the tournament against England on February 4 and following an impressive performance against Leinster, the 29-year-old has been rewarded with a place in Andy Robinson's training squad for the tournament.
The prop has turned out for Scotland A on 12 occasions and has been with the Warriors since 2007 after arriving there from the now disbanded Border Reivers. He is previously turned out for the Newcastle Falcons and Leeds while also being part of the winning Cambridge University side in the 2005 Varsity match.
