Henson’s heroics inspire Ospreys

Gavin Henson scored a superb solo try, which saw him beat former Wallaby star Chris Latham, as holders Ospreys moved nearer the semi-finals of the Anglo-Welsh Cup with a 37-22 win over Worcester.

The Wales star’s 40-metre run, in his first game back since a two-match ban imposed for missing training earlier this month, suggested he was ready for the Six Nations title-holders match against world champions South Africa at the Millennium Stadium on November 8.

Wales wing Shane Williams scored one of the Ospreys’ other three tries with Test outside-half/centre James Hook kicking 17 points.

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

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

In the day’s other Anglo-Welsh tie, Scotland international Gordon Ross kicked 23 points in Saracens’ 33-19 victory over rivals Premiership side Northampton.

Both teams scored two tries, with England Under-20 left-wing Noah Cato and scrum-half Moses Rauluni crossing for Saracens while full-back Ben Foden and Roger Wilson touched down for the Saints.
