Wales scrum-half Webb: I'm 100 per cent fit

Wales scrum-half Rhys Webb insists he is fully ready for the Six Nations after coming through a second run-out on his return from injury.

Webb suffered ankle ligament damage in a November Test against Australia, but made a try-scoring comeback for the Ospreys in the European Challenge Cup last weekend and was temporarily released from Wales' Six Nations squad to play 40 minutes for his club on Saturday, in an Anglo-Welsh Cup win over Bristol.

After the match, Webb was quoted by BBC Sport as saying: "I'm 100 per cent fit. I feel good. I didn't want to come off last week, but was just sticking to the guidelines with the physios and conditioning coaches and same again in this game.

"I don't want to come off after 60. I don't want to come off after 40. I feel I can go on for a lot longer. I've had a good block of rehab and fitness training to get me back where I need to be and I'm loving it at the moment."

Wales begin their Six Nations campaign against Italy in Rome on February 5 and Webb added: "I'm not just going in there to make up the numbers.

"I'll be going in there to fight for that jersey back. I feel fit, ready and raring to go."
