Gavin Henson has been backed to shine in Wales' Autumn Tests next month.
Henson, 26, returns to the Ospreys today (Thurs) after three days training with Wales coach Warren Gatland to prepare for their EDF Energy Cup Pool C decider with London Irish on Sunday.
Henson made a try-scoring return for his region against Worcester last weekend after a two-match ban for poor discipline.
Now Ospreys coach Sean Holley reckons his star asset is on the right road to match sharpness ahead of Wales' opening Test with South Africa on November 8.
Holley said: "Gavin has worked really hard to get back to the highest level but he's clearly in need of games.
"He's such a talent that he needs to continue playing games. It's a long season ahead but it's great to see him fit, healthy and positive. It's right to give him game time."
Henson has not featured for the national team since the dragons' Grand Slam triumph over France at the Millennium Stadium back in March.
The 28-capped star missed the summer tour against the Springboks after ankle surgery and admitted he was surprised to get a call up for the training sqaud for the Invesco Perpetual Series matches in November
He said: "I was surprised to be in the squad as I've only played two games in six months. But I feel ready for the challenge and I will now have to repay the faith in the Wales coaching staff for believing in me."
