In his day Gavin Henson was one of the greats. He still has a lot to offer; and the reference 'bums on seats ' is a big issue with Welsh rugby at this time. If he attracts 500 extra people through the gates then the investment is covered; please get off his back and respect him in the way he deserves.

He's still news is Mr Henson. All he needs now is a season without injury and he'll be a happy man.

It's good to see him back in Wales.


No actually it isn't

if a 35 year old ex kiwi/wallaby/springbok of 40 odd caps turned up on these shores to play rugby it would be *fupping* scandalous.

But a welshman,and a welshman who hasn't played top flight rugby in over three years, that's alright. Call it a symptom of why this country has a problem at the *fupping* sport


That depends. All this is ifs... however, if he plays well then good. There is a lack of depth at centre across Wales, his experience may help other players.

To a certain degree, Henson did lose the respect of a large number of his fans. However, the man has matured all be it late in life and we must now focus on his playing ability.
Last season Henson played very little as he was out injured most of the season. Prior to that, he was playing for Bath. All the Bath pundits on Facebook were saying that Bath was a better side with Henson at 10 while Ford was otherwise occupied with the England squad. I do not think that Ford Snr was impressed by this so got rid of Henson to Bristol. THIS IS A FACT, I even posted a good few of the Facebook comments on 'scumv'. I do not think that Bath lost a game with Henson at 10 or even at 12 (another fact). Playing at 12 he even made Joseph look like a world beater. Henson the man with probably the most educated rugby brain and who has the ability to read the situation on his feet and play what is in front of him. If you relate this to poker, Henson knows when to hold or when to fold.
With that in mind and an injury free Henson, the Dragons could well shake the established pecking order in Wales. I just hope that we do not have the same situation engineered by the diabolic coaches, B&B, at Cardiff a few seasons ago. Probably the two worst coaches ever to grace club rugby in Wales in the professional era.

No their not facts :D Its rambling nonsense the world is against him, the coaches are against him in cardiff, in france, in saracens at bath the ospreys with the lions in the wales camp set up :D :D He is a 35 year old has been, whos been given shelter in the last chance hotel, its is last chance to make money out of a game. No one goes there who has any ambition. Someone described him as an all time great ...... *fupping* laughable, "hes just a very naughty boy" that draws the attention of very gullible people.

I agree that the ambition is lacking for some of the players, however, we either close the Dragons or try abd attract the best players we can. Henson is probably the best player Dragons cab get and will probably improve them.

Which probably says more about the Dragons than Henson.
At best its grasping at straws .... availability through injuries have dogged him and age is against him! Dragons have rolled the dice and the casino usually wins.

I eat marmite sarnies every now and then but Bovril is my favourite.

Vegemite is dreadful. I bought some back in the 90s and it went in the bin after one attempt to choke down a taster.

Henson's skills are recognised the world over, snag is that man has the square root of fupp all when it comes to common sense and playing consequences.

It's an endearing trait for those of us who like flawed maestros.
