Wales scrum-half Rhys Webb has been declared fit for the RBS 6 Nations crunch clash with England at Twickenham.

Webb spent around six months on the sidelines after he picked up a foot injury in Wales' final Rugby World Cup warm-up match against Italy last September, which subsequently ruled him out of the tournament.

Gareth Davies has since taken over No.9 duties for Wales but Webb's try-scoring man-of-the-match performance against Connacht last week will have given national head coach Warren Gatland plenty to think about. Ospreys coach Steve Tandy believes Webb is ready for a return.

"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 said.

"He's an international now and has matured a lot over the years. 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."
