Scott Murray has been handed the chance to redeem himself after Scotland were dealt a major blow ahead of the RBS 6 Nations clash with Wales at Murrayfield on Saturday.
Back-row forward Martin Leslie has been ruled out of the game after injuring his shoulder and neck during training on Friday.
Scotland doctor James Robson has diagnosed a month of rest following the injury which would see the Edinburgh Gunners player miss the rest of the competition.
Coach Ian McGeechan has recalled lock Murray to his squad along with Ross Beattie of Bristol Shoguns.
Murray was dropped by McGeechan after the defeat in France after the national coach claimed the player had "a below-par game".
