Wales captain Ryan Jones is ready to return to club action following a foot injury and rest period, according to Ospreys boss Sean Holley.
Jones has not played since Wales beat Australia 21-18 in November, missing Ospreys’ back-to-back Heineken Cup wins against Benetton Treviso.
"Ryan's ready to go. We could perhaps have pushed him this week, but perhaps made a bold decision not to," Holley told BBC Sport Wales.
"That's paid off. It just shows some of the courage now we've got in the group and the trust, but that means he's going to be right for a return."
Jones could make his comeback in Friday’s Magners League visit to Newport-Gwent Dragons.
