South Africa lock Bakkies Botha is anticipating a tough recall to Test rugby when the Springboks face Scotland at Edinburgh's Murrayfield on Sunday.
Now with French club Toulon, the 34-year-old Botha last played for South Africa more than two years ago at the 2011 World Cup in New Zealand.
But Springbok coach Heyneke Meyer has given the 76-times capped Botha, a member of South Africa's 2007 World Cup-winning team, a chance to revive his international career.
"The Scottish team ended third in the Six Nations last year and they are a phenomenal side," said Botha.
