    Ah would be very interesting to see Henson playing Super Rugby, only question is...Would he last half of the season?

    Think he'd do well in the Super14 but i don't think he'd leave Ospreys/Wales until after the worldcup (that is if he comes back next season)
    He mentions in the interview he still has things he wants to achieve, so i presume thats a HEC and a WC (or at least have a good bash at it either way)

    It's all just speculation anyway "If Gavin wants to leave then he'd be welcome here" is basically what he's saying, but I bet most teams in the world would be interested in signing him

    How long is he out of the game now - 18 months? It'd be a big risk throwing large sums of money at him at this stage. His name recognition could pull in some extra punters in Europe though I'm not sure he'd have the same pull south of the equator.

    I'm not bothered where he plays, I just want to see him playing and getting back to the player he was. At the end of the day where ever he plays, as long as he gets games under his belt and gets back to form and fitness it can only benefit Wales
