Sam Vesty confirmed that the Wales star is likely to be available after missing last weekend's trip to Leinster with a slight knee problem.

Biggar was due to be involved in Dublin but was a late withdrawal, with George Furbank starting and impressing at 10.

But Saints could now be able to call on Biggar against Worcester, along with several other returning stars.

The likes of Courtney Lawes and David Ribbans were rested for the 35-19 defeat at the RDS Arena but are ready to return.

Vesty said: "Courtney and Bigs are both looking back fit again and it will be good to get some of our EPS guys back involved as well.

"We've got guys coming back to fitness and that will be good for us."
