Jon Fisher believes he will come back bigger and stronger as he prepares to return from a lengthy injury lay-off.
Fisher has not played for Saints since injuring his foot in a game at Scarlets in early November.
It was a freak injury really but it’s been a good opportunity over the past few months to improve certain areas of my game physically and I’ve made the most of itJon Fisher
But he has been back in training for the past three weeks and could now get some game time in the LV= Cup semi-final at Saracens on Saturday.
And having used his timely on the sidelines wisely, Fisher is ready to make a big splash at Allianz Park.
“I’m good now,” said the 26-year-old. “I’ve had three weeks of full training so if I get the opportunity I’m prepared.
“When I got injured, I just got my foot caught in the wrong place at the wrong time and a couple of Welsh guys tackled me in different directions.
“It was a freak injury really but it’s been a good opportunity over the past few months to improve certain areas of my game physically and I’ve made the most of it.
“You can always make improvements when you’re out.
“My game is based around that side of things and as a back row forward you need to be physical to make an impression in games. It’s something I take seriously.
“I sat down with one of the strength and conditioning coaches and we annoyed each other for a while but we made the most of the situation and it was good.”
