Bowe break ruins Henson's return

IRELAND wing Tommy Bowe played a major role in denying Gavin Henson a happy return to the Liberty Stadium as the Ospreys continued their home dominance over city rivals Cardiff Blues with a 17-12 victory in a scrappy RaboDirect Pro12 encounter.

Lions back Henson was making his first appearance in Swansea since January 2009, but apart from a few bright moments, was unable to prevent his new side from slipping to defeat against his former team-mates.

A second-half try from Bowe was the crucial moment in an error-strewn match.

Centre Ashley Beck did the initial damage, breaking through from an attacking scrum, replacement Tom Isaacs provided the crucial link and it was left to Bowe to ride the despairing tackle of Henson to touch down on the whitewash.
