Edinburgh and Scotland centre Rob Dewey will return from a two-month injury lay-off in Friday's Heineken Cup match against Agen.
Dewey made a try-scoring debut for Scotland in their November 11 Test against Romania, but he also sustained a knee injury during the match which has kept him out of action since.
The 23-year-old underwent surgery but the timing of his return to action should allow him to come into contention for the RBS 6 Nations, which opens for Scotland with a Twickenham clash against England on February 3.
"It's just great to be back, as I have been going stir crazy in the physio room," said Dewey.
"I'm looking forward to playing again after what's been a frustrating period out of the game."
After missing out on England's 2015 RBS 6 Nations campaign through injury, centre Brad Barritt admits he is determined to make up for that disappointment in style with club side Saracens during the season run-in.
