Latest new start for Gavin Henson
Tuesday 10 July 2012
Premiership newcomers London Welsh have confirmed the signing of Wales centre Gavin Henson.
Henson, 30, has been without a club since April after being sacked by Cardiff Blues over his drunken behaviour on a flight returning from a game in Glasgow.
Henson worked with the Exiles' coach, Lyn Jones, during his time at the Ospreys and has been given the latest in a series of chances to get his career back on track. Jones said: "Gavin has a great talent but over the past three or four seasons he has not realised his full potential for a number of reasons that are well-documented. I sincerely hope and believe he can now draw a line under that period and move forward again with London Welsh."
"What's important for Gavin is that he concentrates 100 per cent on his game and learning how to become the best he can possibly be again. I think he can add a great deal to our game and we can also do a lot for him."
