The 22-cap No.10 sustained the setback in the Scarlets' Heineken Cup clash against Exeter in December and was expected to be out for six months.
But with at least two PRO12 games to go, and maybe more if Scarlets reach the play-offs, Priestland is eyeing some match action before possibly putting his name forward for the two Tests against Japan – starting on June 8.
“It’s out of my hands really,” said Priestland. “I’ve passed all the tests with the physios, so it’s whenever the coaches pick me really, it could be (before the end of the season).
“It’s been good, obviously I’d never wish to rupture my Achilles again, but it’s been nice to have a rest and have the rest of my body feeling good as well. All in all I’m feeling pretty good and I want to get back to playing rugby and enjoying it.
“I just want to come back and feel good with the way I play and I’d love to get into the play-offs with the Scarlets because as a group we’ve been close the last couple of years and not quite got there, I think this year we have the potential to get there and I want to be a part of it.”
