Toby Flood casts aside Jonny Wilkinson popularity

Even if Toby Flood is right in suspecting 58 million Englishmen want Jonny Wilkinson to start at fly-half in the World Cup, there is only one man whose opinion really counts.

Wilko and out? HQ hopes not

To add to the controversy over their all-black change kit, England have made Jonny Wilkinson's future a grey area. Post-World Cup, we are told, players based abroad will only be selected in "exceptional circumstances".

Gavin Henson included in Toulon squad

Gavin Henson was today included in the Toulon squad for Saturday's clash with Montpellier.

Toulon grant Henson reprieve but warn this is his last chance

Gavin Henson, the celebrity centre from Wales who has become far more famous for the things he does off the field than for the deeds he performs on it, is still a Toulon player.

Henson faces sack at Toulon after fight with team-mates

It would be wrong to suggest that Gavin Henson is earning himself a dodgy reputation, for the very good reason that he has had one of those for years. This could be serious, though. The celebrity midfielder from Wales, whose recent rugby record includes a period of unpaid leave lasting more than 18 months and a spell of half-hearted activity at Saracens lasting all of five minutes, has now been suspended for a week by Toulon, apparently for fighting with at least one team-mate after a club game at the weekend. Some close observers of rugby affairs on the Mediterranean believe he is about to be sacked.
