Sheffield Eagles' Australia-born stand-off Brendon Lindsay had been called into the Scotland squad for the European Cup.
The 32-year-old got the nod from coach Steve McCormack after an impressive season with the Eagles, culminating in a place in the Co-operative Championship All-Star Team.
Lindsay, who qualifies through a grandfather from Dunfermline, joins fellow Sheffield players Mitch Stringer and back rower Alex Szostak in the 20-man squad.
The stand-off, who joined the Eagles in 2006, will be hoping to make his debut when the Scots open their campaign against Italy in Padova on October 17.
