Henson set to return for London Welsh in October

Former Wales centre Gavin Henson is set to make his comeback for London Welsh against Stade Francais in the European Challenge Cup on the 13th of October.

London Welsh plan to use Henson as a fly half bute he injured his cheekbone in a pre-season friendly match against the Scarlets .

Henson has missed the last month of rugby with a fractured cheekbone but has still trained with the Premiership newcomers.

“Gavin is training with us at the moment,” head coach Lyn Jones told BBC Radio Wales.

“He’s back on the field and running around, but just no contact yet.”

Thirty-year-old Henson joined London Welsh in he off season after he was sacked by Pro 12 Rugby club Cardiff Blues in April.

“He’s going to be fit for contact on 6 October and he’s going to be involved, probably, in our first Amlin game against Stade Francais,” added Jones who coached Henson at the Ospreys.

“He’s excited and we’re all excited to have him back. “

“We are just utilising him at the moment, and he’s helping some of our back-three players improve their kicking and he’s enjoying that responsibility.

London Welsh have been one of the surprise packages of this season’s Aviva Premiership and have played four matches and won two already.
