Scotland head coach Frank Hadden has recalled Donnie Macfadyen to the international stage - almost 19 months after his last appearance in a dark blue jersey.
The 26-year-old openside flanker will start against South Africa in the first Test at the ABSA Stadium in Durban on Saturday.
The Glasgow Warriors player was sidelined for 15 months with a recurring knee injury but will return to the Scotland line-up after impressing as a substitute in the 66-19 win over the Barbarians last week.
Macfadyen won the last of his nine caps in the defeat by the Springboks in November 2004, under former Scotland boss Matt Williams.
Allister Hogg has recovered from a hamstring injury to take the place of Simon Taylor, who is recovering from knee surgery, at number eight.
Scott Lawson starts at hooker while Nathan Hines partners Scott Murray in the second row.
