Gavin Henson: Bristol coach Sean Holley encouraged by form

Bristol Rugby first-team coach Sean Holley says there is more to come from centre Gavin Henson.

The Welshman suffered a broken fibula against Worcester in May's Championship play-off first leg but battled back to be fit for the start of the season.

And Holley says the 33-year-old former Wales international is still working his way back to full fitness.

"There is still more to come from Gav, he is still finding his feet," Holley told BBC Radio Bristol.

The former British and Irish Lion has played five games for Bristol this season but has already amassed 39 points, and Holley is encouraged by Henson's early-season form.

"He's gaining in confidence and fitness and is showing flashes of real quality," he added.

"He brings a good kicking game. We have the added advantage of being able to bring on the experience of Adrian Jarvis so we are in good fettle at the moment."
