He played 150 times for Edinburgh between 20004 and 2012 and won 23 full caps for Scotland. After a season with London Scottish in 2012/13 he has been at the Falcons for the last two years.

Godman said: “I’m really looking forward to putting some of the things I’ve learned over the years and my own ideas into practice as well as just working with as many kids as possible, showing them the benefits of being involved in rugby that I’ve enjoyed in my career.”
