Ally Hogg will get the chance to impress Scotland coach Frank Hadden when he plays for Edinburgh in the Celtic League clash with Munster on Friday night.
The Edinburgh captain was left out of the squad to play France in the RBS 6 Nations opener at Murrayfield and was then a replacement in the second match against Wales in Cardiff.
With Scotland losing both matches, Hadden is sure to be considering his options ahead of next weekend's trip to Dublin to face Ireland.
Hogg, a regular in the Scotland back row for the entire period of Hadden's tenure, is determined to reclaim his place in the side.
John Barclay, Dave Callam, Kelly Brown and captain Jason White have been ahead of Hogg in the pecking order so far in this season's RBS 6 Nations.
Gavin Kerr and Hugo Southwell - both of whom played against Wales - are also in Edinburgh's starting line-up while Nick De Luca, who endured two poor matches as he begins his Scotland career, is named amongst the replacements as Andy Robinson's men aim to record their fifth successive league win.
Robinson said: “The squad members that stayed behind here at Edinburgh have been training hard and everyone realises it is important that we put a performance together.
“The team have not played together for a few weeks, so it is important that we produce a good performance and find some rhythm going into the game.”
