Cipriani scored 21 points with the boot against Leicester
Wasps coach Ian McGeechan expects Danny Cipriani to be back in the England side before the end of the Six Nations.
McGeechan, who will also coach the Lions in South Africa in the summer, saw the fly-half shine in Wasps' 36-29 win over Leicester on Sunday.
"I'll be very surprised if he is not back in an England jersey by the end of the Six Nations," said McGeechan.
"He is starting to shape up again after his serious ankle injury. He was good in training and in the game."
Cipriani impressed on his England debut against Ireland last March but suffered a fracture dislocation of his ankle in a club match against Bath in May.
He returned in the autumn internationals against South Africa and Australia but was dropped after disappointing displays.
McGeechan added: "You've got to be careful not to underestimate the size of that injury. Maybe some expectations were higher than they should have been.
"I was very pleased with the way he played against Leicester. He put a lot into that and he was pretty physical. He put himself on the front line and the players appreciate that. He will always do things that lift a team."
As for Cipriani's Lions' hopes, McGeechan added: "No doors are closed. In a Lions context we've got to pick players who are playing well."
