Henson set for Blues debut

Gavin Henson will make his Cardiff Blues debut in Friday night's RaboDirect Pro12 clash against Newport Gwent Dragons.

Henson has been selected at full-back for the game at Cardiff City Stadium.

The 29-year-old former Ospreys, Saracens and Toulon back has embarked on a short-term deal with the Blues, although his introduction was delayed while he recovered from injury.

Henson appeared on course to make Wales' World Cup squad earlier this year, but a wrist injury suffered in a tournament warm-up Test against England four months ago scuppered those hopes.
