Gavin Henson steps Chris Latham to score a great try

Gavin Henson steps Chris Latham to score a great try

A few days ago we featured a fantastic covering tackle from the flying prop Matt Mullan on James Hook which took place in the Ospreys vs Worcester match from Sunday. In the same game, Ospreys center Gavin Henson crossed the tryline, and we've had a few requests to see that try.

Henson, who was returning for only his second start since an operation on his right ankle last April, and after a short two week Ospreys imposed ban for missing training, showed us glimpses of the class that those who've followed his career have come to expect.

He was put into the gap nicely by James Hook, but then dished out a fantastic step that had Wallaby fullback Chris Latham stuck dead on his heels.

There was a moment of magic with James Hooks pass to Gavin that put him into the midfield hole, but he still had a lot to do, said Ospreys coach Sean Holley.

Gavin showed his fitness and sharpness and it was great to see him finish off like that.

Holleys comments were backed up by Worcester coach Mike Ruddock.

Gavin looked good, said Ruddock, who had Henson in his Grand Slam winning side of 2005.

He looked sharp and strong on his feet.

He was very balanced and made some impressive line breaks.

Gavin is only going to get better when he has more games under his belt.

If Henson stays fit, injury free, and out of 'trouble', we'll be sure to see more quality play from him in the upcoming few months.
