Will Gavin Henson work out at London Welsh?
Not so long ago, we offered our opinion that London Welsh would in no way be stupid enough to sign the Orange Nightmare that is Gavin Henson. Incredibly, coach Lyn Jones has decided not to take the advice of this tinpot blog and has instead decided to take the plunge with the former Swansea, Saracens and Toulon man. So, Henson, instead of looking foward to a summer contemplating another godawful television appearance (right), which shade of Sunshimmer to purchase, or which pokerblog to try his luck with, will instead be reporting for pre-season training with the Aviva Premiership's newest outfit.
But will it work?
During Henson's 2005-2008 purple patch, Lyn Jones was the man looking after his club career which in the face of it is a good sign. But, it was Henson's increasingly bizarre personal and public persona that seems to have derailed his talent more than who was telling him which drills to run at training. Time will tell whether Lyn knows him better than others and focus whatever is left of his undoubted ability.
Personally, I think it's more doomed than Waisale Serevi at a following coaches orders workshop, but what do you think?Tweet
