Gavin Henson given chance to impress before Wales start Six Nations campaign
Date Posted: 19/01/12
The chances of Gavin Henson appearing for Wales in their opening Six Nations match against Ireland have improved, after he was named in a 35-man training squad.
Henson has only appeared twice for Warren Gatland's side since 2009, while he also dislocated his wrist before a warm-up match against England last year, which ruined his chances of appearing in the recent World Cup in New Zealand.
The full-back, who can also play at fly-half and in the centres, will now be eyeing a starting place in the team, which travels to Dublin on Sunday February 5th to play Ireland at the Aviva Stadium in front of fans booking weekend breaks.
"We showed a huge amount of potential at the Rugby World Cup in New Zealand and we will be working as hard as humanly possible to ensure that we reach our potential in this year's Six Nations championship," said coach Gatland.
