Henson back in Welsh fold

6:30 am on 6 June 2011

Gavin Henson has been named in Wales' preliminary Rugby World Cup squad after returning from a two-year absence in the 31-28 last gasp defeat to the Barbarians.

After recently parting company with Toulon, Henson has been selected among Warren Gatland's 45-man party following his first appearance for Wales since March 2009.

The 29-year-old has not played for the Dragons since facing Ireland two years ago.
