Riki Flutey is targeting an England recall after finally putting 18 months of injury hell behind him.
The Wasps centre spent the majority of last season sidelined by a shoulder injury and he missed England's November Tests with a torn calf. Flutey's comeback was then delayed by another fortnight after he contracted a severe dose of the flu, which left him bed-ridden and unable to walk.
But the 30-year-old helped Wasps climb into fourth place in the Aviva Premiership with a 33-16 victory over Newcastle on Sunday, and said: "I have got a bit of game-time coming up. I am looking forward to next week against Harlequins and hopefully put myself in contention for the Six Nations."
He added: "It's been a while with my calf injury. That took longer than expected. It was in an area of my calf that the medical teams with England and Wasps hadn't seen a tear before.
"It has taken a while but it is good to finally have it right now.
"The England management have been great. I have had the England physios and doctors coming into Wasps once a week to check on things.
"All I need to do is get on the field and get some game-time and I know that will give me loads of confidence going forward into the Six Nations."
