Gavin Henson is fit to resume for the Ospreys in their crucial Heineken Cup clash in Perpignan this weekend.
The Wales and Lions centre has recovered from the shoulder knock he suffered in the New Year Magners League victory over the Cardiff Blues and is all set to return to the Ospreys midfield.
"Gavin is fine, although we have probably lost Sonny Parker for a couple of weeks with a damaged rib," confirmed Ospreys coach Sean Holley.
"That means the selection problems I might have had at centre won't be as bad because Andrew Bishop is playing so well at the moment. We knew his defence was good, but his attacking play has been excellent of late and he is playing with renewed confidence.
"But Gavin has shown some real form since coming back and he is fit and ready to play again. We just felt that with Charlotte giving birth to their second child, and his knock against the Blues, it wasn't worth risking him last weekend."
Henson has been in sparkling form since returning late this season after an operation on his ankle. He scored two tries from full back against the Dragons and has also figured at centre.
He will be looking to impress Wales coach Warren Gatland over the next two weeks as the Ospreys got into battle with Perpignan and Leicester Tigers to see which team will emerge on top of Pool 3 in Europe.
