His return would be a huge boost for Declan Kidney's team after winning the 2010 RBS 6 Nations player of the year award.
Bowe, who turns 27 on Tuesday, showed glimpses of that sort of form in the Ospreys convincing 34-18 victory over Treviso.
While fellow wing Nikki Walker stole the headlines with a hat-trick, Bowe was his usual busy self and even forced a turnover which led to the Scotsman's second try.
And while Ireland's Championship has begun on a glum note with a narrow victory over Italy and a defeat to champions France, Bowe maintains it is still all to play for as he eyes a return to the international fold.
He said: "The Triple Crown is still very much alive for us and if results go our way, we're still in a chance of the Championship.
"We need to win next weekend and hopefully I'll be involved.
"The most important thing for me was to get through a game and for my knee to be fine, which I've now done.
"I like to think I can bring an element of attack to the team."
