    This has been on the cards for a while now. The guy is a very good player but injuries and idiocy always seemed to keep him from becoming one of the top centres in the game. Maybe Jamie Roberts' great form has been something of a catalyst? Now not being guaranteed a spot in the Welsh 22 when fit may have been the final nail in the coffin. Or it could just be coincidental.

    We have Roberts now; stuff him.

    Let him wallow in the spotlight one last time.

    I was reading a sun in the chinese take away a week or two ago, and it said Henson was considering changing codes and playing league for the celtic crusaders

    The Sun = Bullsh...
  12. Henson is very over-rated in my opinion. He had a few good games in the red shirt and everyone was suddenly saying how he is one of the worlds best. Completely undeserved I think, but it is only my opinion.

    I think Roberts is, now, hands-down a much better choice and fits in well with the Phillips-Jones combination with powerful running lines setting up quick phases. Powerful running rugby at its best.

    If Henson were to quit it would be a shame because he does have potentional and is a big personality of modern rugby. Just needs a bit of luck to avoid the injuries now.

    Roberts can operate at 13 just as well as he can 12.

    Proof; BOD and Roberts switching during the Lions tour for certain set pieces or just generally playing left/right instead of inside/outside like flankers do.

    Henson could easily be incorporated into the current Welsh squad as a 10, 12, 13 or 15. He's shown himself to be a decent from hand kicker, goalkicker and ballcarrier in Wales colours.

    Sure, he's maybe a bit of a twat for the media to get attention but so did David Beckham and he's regarded as one of the best football players of recent times. Don't blame him just because the media makes a big deal about him and his bird.

    Oh, and his tendency to rile up the public on trains doesn't help either, but he's not a bad player by any means.

    Henson and Roberts are very different kinds of player. Henson is a natural but he'll never be consistent - tough luck for Wales.

    At least I have a few more years of making orange jokes.
  16. He will remain as the player who can kick 200 meter kicks in rugby 08

    Yes! Good man! Nothing else to talk about. lets do the Henson is a load of shite one again. Anyone up for a ruckus?

    I say he's overrated, orange, 27 year old potential is another term for failure and overall hes pretty average when compared to the great BOD.

    Any takers?
  18. Everything seems to come so naturally to Gavin. I watched a run of his on the '08 GS 6N DVD, and he just seemd to beat people without trying, which is certainly rare. Just imagine what he could achive if he actually put his mind to something for once!

    I think Gavin Henson is possibly the most infuritating player ever. We know he can play well and be one of the best centres in world rugby.

    However the brain doesnt want to it, and I have an inkling there is a bit of an ego issue with him. Thinks he is better than he is, now we have Jamie Roberts at 12 I don't think Wales need him.

    Tbf, he didn;t actually do anything on the train. It was his mates. A family came forward when Henson faced court action and explained that Henson actually didn;t do anything (i.e. **** on the floor). That's why he didn't get punished.

    Bristol-iain - I think Wales are just a better team with him at 12, and I really want to see him and Roberts together in the centres. The only time we've actually seen it though was Italy v Wales where our pack just couldn;t get any clean ball so we didn;t see any of him. I am a massive fan of Roberts though and think he is really gonna be fanastic for Wales and the Blues, it's just I think he works so much better when he's lined up with someone with a bit of creative genius in the midfield, which is why I think him and O'Driscoll worked so well.
