Bundee Aki looks set to be fit for the start of Ireland’s Six Nations campaign.
Connacht head coach Andy Friend says the centre could even feature in this Sunday’s Pro 14 meeting with the Ospreys.
The centre has been out since last month with a knee injury.
However, fellow centre Sammy Arnold has been ruled out until April due to a chest muscle injury.
Meanwhile, Friend says he’s held “really positive” contract talks with his current deal expiring at the end of the season.
