    He'll probably injure himself doing that reality tv show about trekking to/across/something to do with the arctic, and be out for another two years

    Will be interesting to see how well he does after such a long time out

    Think people should cut him some slack. People slag him off puerly for the fact they secretly wish that he played for their nation. People will say no but its the truth. Henson is a good player, kept himself in shape. Hopefully will return and be as good as he was pre-injury.

    Only worry i'd have is will Henson be same player he was.
    Like before he went off rails he was a fabulous gifted player but a year out may not work in his favour i'd fear.

    This whole thing with Henson is just becoming annoying. Wales are better than having to hold onto the hope that the deity that is Gavin Henson returns. Yes he is a fantastic player whe he wants to be, there is no denying that. But I doubt his psychological ability to deal with the pressure of being Gavin Henson. I hope he proves me wrong. Meanwhile I hope the media would leave this story alone from here on in, because its boring and just puts pressure on him.

    I'd find it difficult to drop the Hook-Bishop combination for the Ospreys at the moment and hes going to have to work really hard to get back into that team.

    Henson is going to struggle to get into the Opsreys team, I think he should move to another Welsh region on loan.

    I slag him off because he's a twat and no, I don't ant him in the Ireland team. Messers Drico and D'arcy are better players.

    The Enigma is back.

    Never been convinced by Gavin, I want him to do well because when he is on form he matches most centres. However he doesn't play well enough of the time. I'd like to think he will return at his best but I'm not confident about it.

    Hooray! Hopefully Gav can prove his critics wrong. And wear more fake tan than ever before on his Wales recall, just to make a point.

    That's not possible. Johnson and Johnson went top of the FTSE100 last time Henson was on the test stage.

    gotta laugh at this one , both Bod and Darcy were like little kids when paying henson in 2005 , Bod in particular was like a mini tait!!! but so much more petulant.

    sorry but i think bod was quite established by 2005 as a great center
    and darcy was a good player then and is now but not as good as henson i think
    but henson will struggle wales need a full back for cover at least can gav do full back? as i dont think its wise to move hook

    Apart from a single 45m penalty and picking up a 12 stone 17-year-old, what exactly did Henson do in 2005?

    (Excluding acting as the Dan Carter 70m shuttle run escort party?)

    Wales won't move Hook. To be fair he'd struggle to get in to the Welsh squad at centre. When he comes back he has to look at either playing 10 or 15. If he wants to play 12 he would have to look to move regions.
