Henson must wait for comeback
5 December 2005 07:43am
Gavin Henson's return to action was again put on hold as he failed a late fitness test ahead of the Ospreys' 43-28 Powergen Cup win at Bristol.
"Gavin was devastated not to play in this game as he was really looking forward to it," said Ospreys head coach Lyn Jones.
"But it was one of those things that quite commonly happens in a rugby player's week when he is weight training and does not do his technique correctly.
"He trained on Saturday morning and looked very good but his back stiffened afterwards and he could not move freely prior to coming to Bristol.
"If he is to have any chance of playing at Leicester, he would need to train fairly injury-free and it was not worth risking him and possibly aggravating the injury for this match."
