Chris Paterson is desperate to add to his 100 Scotland caps as he nears a comeback from the kidney damage that ended his season.
National team talisman Paterson has not played since being hospitalised by the freak injury during February's RBS 6 Nations defeat in Wales, and is in a race against time to be on the plane to Buenos Aires for Scotland's summer tour of Argentina.
But, regardless of whether he earns cap number 101 in June or later this year, he cannot wait to be part of what is shaping up to be an exciting era under Andy Robinson, saying: "I think everyone's excited and, looking ahead, it could be a big year for all of us. I want to be in the best shape I can for my club side, to knock on the door to add to my cap tally and to continue to improve."
He added: "That's what's driven me in 12 years of professional rugby - improvement - and I want to continue to do that."
