WALES assistant coach Shaun Edwards believes Jonathan Davies has a "fighting chance" of returning to the side for next week's Six Nations clash with England.

The British Lions centre, who has played just 40 minutes since tearing his pectoral muscle in November, is set for a run-out for the Scarlets against Pro12 leaders Munster on Saturday as he looks to prove his fitness for the trip to Twickenham. Asked about the prospects of Davies being recalled to the side, Edwards said: "Do I think he will be in with a chance? I think he will be in with a fighting chance of playing, yes.

"He is one of the best centres in the northern hemisphere

"I thought George (North) did very well in that position against France, and Jonathan knows he will have to fight his way back into the team, but he is a very determined man, and I am pretty sure he will be trying to put his best foot forward for the Scarlets, then be up for selection for us."

Edwards also revealed that lock Alun Wyn Jones, who missed the win over France because of a foot infection, is expected to be fit to face England.
