I think he's nailed the "Exceptional Career", Naj.

He failed some of the other requirement needed to be remembered kindly by folks west of Porthcawl.

Henson was often a brilliant player, but he ruined it by going too much into the celebrity crap, to the point where he even left the RWC 2011 training camp to join a reality TV show, has been constantly injured and for a while was so ill-disciplined that he was sacked by three different clubs.

Adam and Ryan Jones won even more than did Henson - should we bring them back too?

Henson got injured in the game against the Barbarians. I don't think he featured in the 2011 squad.

He was ruled out of the 2011 RWC by a hand injury sustained in the Wales-England warm-up match.

I believe both of those have retired from International rugby. And I don't believe I called for Gav to be brought back.

Gavin dislocated his wrist - this is an open goal for you .... seize the opportunity.

I watched the highlights and it was like the old days - but he was f****d after about 50 minutes. So much time on the ball, great decision making and superb defence given his shoulder problems. Class most certainly is permanent.

The nostalgic part of me says he couldnt possibly be less effective than our current 10/12 combos, but the reality is that he is probably not up to an international recall!

My Dad oft used the expression 'In ignorance there is intelligence but genius is oft tempered by insanity'

Henson, epitomised failed fulfillment of a talent at the door of incapability to harness it.

Sad in total but glorious in snapshots.

Well said, his timing of passes and putting people into space has become a lost art...enjoyed watching him play.
