Henson joins Cardiff in fresh bid to revive career

FORGOTTEN man Gavin Henson has completed a U-turn and returned to his native Wales to sign for Cardiff Blues.

Lions centre Henson, who was released by French side Toulouse in the summer, has penned an eight-month contract. The 29-year-old insisted he wanted to get away from Wales when he negotiated his early release from Ospreys and signed for Saracens 12 months ago.

But Henson only played four games for the Premiership champions before joining Toulouse in February.

He fought his way back into Warren Gatland’s Wales squad but missed out on the World Cup squad with a wrist injury.
