Look who’s back.
Liam Williams will make his long awaited return this weekend against Ospreys, after Saracens boss Mark McCall declared the Welshman fit for their Champions Cup clash.
The 26 year-old has been out of action since November 18 when he tore his groin ligaments while on international duty for Wales against Georgia.
His return will come as a significant boost to Wales boss Warren Gatland, who names his Six Nations squad early next week.
“He’s available for selection,” McCall told BBC.
“If there are no ill-effects from today’s training session, which was the tougher of the two days, then he’s got a great chance of being involved in the squad.
“We’ve taken our time but he looks pretty good, he just needs to make sure there’s not a reaction.
“It’s always a calculated gamble to bring someone back who hasn’t played for a bit.
“But I think you do have the odd exceptional player who is able to do that and is good enough for you to want to put that player in. Liam is probably in that category.”
Williams’ return is especially good timing for Gatland, who is sweating over injuries to George North and Hallam Amos. He’s also set to be without a number of veteran internationals including Dan Lydiate and Lions captain Sam Warburton.
