Sean Lamont, the Scotland winger who came within inches of marking his Test debut with a try against Samoa last week, will find it a whole lot harder to get near the whitewash on Sunday.
The 23-year-old will come face-to-face with Lote Tuqiri at the Telstra Dome but with all the fearless ambition of youth is relishing the chance to take on a star-studded Wallabies back division.
And why not? Only last year Lamont moved from Rotherham to Glasgow and went on to enjoy a stunning season, capped by a 'player of the year' award, a Scotland call-up and then a Scotland Test debut.
Lamont is an industrious, modern day winger; hungry for the ball, he will pop up in midfield or embark on bullocking runs down the line.
One such foray took him over against Samoa last Friday, only for a desperate islander defence to keep him from touching down.
Still, the 38-3 victory was secured, Lamont had played a key role in its orchestration and the spirit in the Scotland camp is jumping.
"It was a first win in seven and we just hope to continue," said Lamont.
"Every dog has their day and hopefully we can have ours. Everyone is feeling so much better.
"It is hard to describe, words can't really describe getting selected to play Australia.
"They are top three in the world, it is a big chance."
Hugo Southwell, who will play inside Lamont at fullback, described an air of fearlessness in the Scotland back three - total caps eight - and had given no time over to worrying about the task that will face them with Joe Roff, Wendell Sailor and Tuqiri - total caps 115 - running full pelt at them.
Wallabies coach Eddie Jones has named them all as fullbacks, the intention being that they will interchange positions to provide a fluid, varied attack and place increased pressure on Scotland's defensive kicking.
For Lamont, though, the prospect is inspirational.
"I just love the game. Every game I go out, I love it, I can't get enough of it. Even though I do it 24/7, it's what I love," he said.
"They are a strong team, they have got a lot of fast guys, big guys. We saw what Wendell Sailor did to us for Queensland, he was just brushing boys.
"It's a learning curve and we'll know next time to make sure he doesn't do the same.
"Tuqiri is my opposite number. I have never played against him but he is the number one winger in the world at the moment. He is fast, a bit more elusive than Sailor."
