Alex Corbisiero scored the Lions' first try in the series decider in Sydney
British & Irish Lions prop Alex Corbisiero is nearing a return to action for Northampton Saints, according to director of rugby Jim Mallinder.
Corbisiero, who started the first and third Lions Tests last summer, scoring an early try in the decider in Sydney, has not featured for six months, having picked up a knee injury last autumn.
He was reported to be in contention for Saints' clash with Bath last Friday but while that came too soon for him, he could find himself back in action against Wasps this weekend.
"Hopefully, we've got a couple of big lads in the front row returning soon," said Mallinder.
"They're all training well, working hard and we could see some of them against Wasps."
