Holley hails 'magic moment'
Ospreys coach pays tribute to Henson return
There was a moment of magic with James Hook's pass to Gavin that put him into the midfield hole, but he still had a lot to do.
Quotes of the week
Coach Sean Holley has described James Hook and Gavin Henson's link up for Ospreys' second try in their 37-22 victory over Worcester as 'a moment of magic'.
Henson, returning from a much publicised two-match ban, was put in the clear by Hook to run in from 40 metres for a brilliant solo effort during Sunday's EDF Energy Cup clash at Liberty Way.
But the coach was under no illusions as to the task ahead as he turns his eye towards a trip to the Madejski Stadium to fight for a semi-final spot with London Irish next Sunday.
"There was a moment of magic with James Hook's pass to Gavin that put him into the midfield hole, but he still had a lot to do," said Holley.
"Gavin showed his fitness and sharpness and it was great to see him finish off like that.
"It means a hell of a lot to try to retain this trophy. It is what is spurring us on, retaining the trophy for our fans and for our region.
"But London Irish had a good win against Harlequins yesterday and we know they are very much still in the mix."
Holley has lost 14 players to international duty after Welsh Rugby Union won a High Court ruling on Friday.
The ruling released Wales coach Warren Gatland's 32-man squad from the regions for national sessions on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday but Holley played down the impact on his squad.
He added: "The bulk of your work is done in pre-season these days, and as a squad we look pretty healthy.
"We will go about our business and I will pick a team accordingly.
"You plan your weeks well in advance and these guys are very experienced players."
Worcester boss Mike Ruddock admitted his team had been beaten by a better side on the day.
"We battled hard but the Ospreys took their chances well," he said
"We've got to rely on London Irish to do a job for us now. They are a very good team and they will be playing at home.
"We are not in control of the group. All we can do is try to get a win over Harlequins (next Sunday)."
