The Australian ace had been nursing an ankle problem, forcing him to miss the Gallagher Premiership win at Worcester Warriors on December 21.

He was available but not selected for Friday's sensational success against Exeter Chiefs at Franklin's Gardens, but he will now be back in action at Broadstreet RFC.

The Wanderers have claimed back-to-back wins in the Premiership Rugby Shield, propelling them up to second in the Northern Conference.
