Chalmers set to play a Corker.
Scotland's most-capped stand-off has been battling a serious knee-ligament injury which ruled him out of the Test tour of Australia.
But now he's set to play for 20 minutes of the Edinburgh Reivers' European Cup warm- up clash with Munster in Cork.
Manager Nick Oswald said: "Craig is back in action ahead of schedule and that is down to his positive and professional attitude. He's worked tremendously hard over the past three or four months to overcome an injury which would have floored many other players for much longer.
"Obviously we want to re-introduce him as gradually as possible but just having a man of his experience around will act as a huge confidence boost."
Meanwhile, international prop Gordon McIlwham could be turned into an emergency hooker for Glasgow Caledonians' trip to Belfast to take on Ulster tomorrow.
Kevin McKenzie is almost certainly out through injury and the other contracted No.2's - Gavin Scott and Gordon Bulloch - are also on the sick list.
Chris Docherty of Glasgow Hawks could play from the start with McIlwham in reserve for Caley, who yesterday completed the signing of centre John Leslie - the son of former All Blacks skipper Andy.
Elsewhere, Boroughmuir finally admitted defeat in the tug-of-war with Blackheath over former Under-21 full-back Campbell Aitken.
The ex-Heriots hero confirmed: "I have signed a one-year deal with Blackheath but my aim is to return north as soon as possible. I am heading south for job reasons and not rugby ones."
Muir backs coach Sean Lineen said: "I'm afraid in situations like this most clubs in Scotland just cannot compete with those in England.''
