Mike Tindall has been named on the bench for Gloucester's Heineken Cup clash against Munster at Kingsholm on Saturday.
England centre Tindall has not played since suffering serious injuries during the RBS 6 Nations loss to Wales on February 2.
He sustained a torn liver, punctured lung and suffered internal bleeding after taking an accidental kick from an opponent, spending three days in the intensive care unit of a London hospital as a result.
But Tindall is now likely to begin his comeback as Gloucester target a Heineken Cup semi-final place for the first time since 2001.
James Simpson-Daniel continues at outside centre, with Scotland international Chris Paterson replacing a concussed Iain Balshaw on the right wing.
Up front, Andy Hazell wins a place in the back-row, but his fellow flankers Alasdair Strokosch and Akapusi Qera, who is injured, both miss out on the matchday 22.
Gloucester head coach Dean Ryan said: "We didn't want to take a risk with Mike for the sake of one game, and we left the decision pretty much to him.
"Needless to say, to have a player of his experience and understanding available for a game of this magnitude is huge for us.
"He has done everything that he needs to do - he will bring a level of expertise that are key in these games."
