Webb to return for Wales?

Rhys Webb's road to fitness continues as he gets another start for Ospreys on Saturday when they face second positioned Leinster in the PRO12 in Dublin.

This is his second start for the Swansea side, his being against Munster last week, since being out of action due to an ankle injury picked up in a World Cup warm-up match between Wales and Italy in September last year.

Ospreys head coach Steve Tandy is positive that Webb will be in the match-day squad, next week when Wales face the Six Nations table topping England at Twickenham.

"I have no doubt if he were going into the Twickenham game off the bench he would do a real good job for Wales," Tandy told the Six Nations Offical Website.

Webb will not only be in the starting line-up for Ospreys but he will also captain the side, which is testament of Tandy backing him to be selected for Wales.

"He's an international now and has matured a lot over the years," said Tandy 

"Not only does he know his body and what he needs to do, he is also ultra-confident in his ability. 

"Physically he is in great shape."

Wales are the only other undefeated side, a win next week could see them top the table, with only one fixture remaining after next week.
