David Ribbans, Alex Mitchell and Dan Biggar have now concluded their Six Nations commitments and come back into contention for the Gallagher Premiership trip to Sixways.

Ribbans and Mitchell didn't get any game time for England, but Biggar was at the heart of Wales' Grand Slam bid, which fell just short in France last weekend.

And now the three key men will return to help boost a Saints side who suffered an agonising 28-21 defeat to Bristol Bears at Franklin's Gardens on Sunday.

"I've had a conversation with him (Biggar) and he'll be back in training," said Saints boss Chris Boyd.

"He had both fallow weeks off during the Six Nations.

"He's had two weekends off in the past seven weeks so Biggs will be back.

"Dave Ribbans and Alex Mitchell will also be back.

"Tom James has done a good job in Mitch's absence and we look forward to bringing him back."
