Cohen fit to return
31 March 2005 12:14pm
Ben Cohen's chances of making a late bid for the British & Irish Lions tour of New Zealand have been boosted after it was confirmed he will make his comeback on Friday night.
England wing Cohen has been selected at outside centre for Saints' daunting mission against the twice European champions.
He has not played since suffering a fractured cheekbone during the IRB Tsunami Aid game at Twickenham, but now returns instead of Andy Vilk to forge a midfield partnership alongside Marc Stcherbina.
But, after missing out on the recent Six Nations, Cohen will have his work cut out to impress Lions boss Sir Clive Woodward who is set to name his squad on April 11.
Fellow Lions hopefuls, England hooker Steve Thompson and Scotland prop Tom Smith, return to the Northampton pack for the game.
