Phil Godman has admitted he is "excited" about what Edinburgh can achieve after agreeing at new two-year deal with the club.

The Scotland fly-half has scored 355 points for Edinburgh in 130 appearances since joining from Newcastle six years ago.

And the 27-year-old is confident that the side have the potential to go and win silverware.

"I'm delighted to be staying and I'm really excited about what we can achieve," he said.

"I'm proud to play for Edinburgh - it means a lot to me. But the main reason I wanted to stay is because I'm ambitious and I want to win trophies.

"The last couple of seasons have been good - both for me personally and for Edinburgh - and one of our goals this season is to win the Magners League.

"That is something we still have a very good chance of achieving with three games in the regular season remaining and the play-offs coming up.

"I believe over the next two seasons we can continue to progress and make an impact in Europe and the Magners League."

Edinburgh have also handed Scotland Sevens international Lee Jones a professional contract for next season after the 21-year-old winger impressed playing for Selkirk.
