Western Force inside centre Kyle Godwin is set to return to action after recovering from his latest injury.

Godwin's Wallaby dream has been on hold for a while now due to a cruel run of injuries.

Last year, the 22-year-old missed out on selection for Australia's end of year tour to Europe due to a shoulder injury.

And earlier this season a knee injury kept him on the sidelines during the Wallabies' 3-0 series victory over France.

But he will make his long awaited return on Sunday for Perth Spirit when they host Brisbane City in a National Rugby Championship fixture.

Australia still play five Tests during the next two months but Godwin is not thinking about playing for the Wallabies at the moment.

"Right now I'm struggling to even get a spot in the NRC, so that's my first priority," he told AAP.

"I've had a bit of bad luck in terms of a few injuries over the years.

"Hopefully I can put those behind me and get on the field and improve my rugby.

"I'm feeling great, and I'm very confident in my knee.

"There's always going to be a bit of elasticity in the knee. It's going to be a bit loose.

"But my body's gotten used to that."
