Gavin Henson suspended for two games

Wales centre Gavin Henson has been suspended for two games by his club Ospreys after skipping training following a training ground argument.

Henson was heavily criticised for his poor performance against Harlequins in the EDF Energy Cup and failed to show up to training last Wednesday as a result. The talented centre has just returned from an ankle injury, but the decision to drop him puts his future at the club and with Wales in doubt.

If Danny Cipriani needs a reminder of how a talented player's career can go off the rails he could do worse that look at Henson's career. It's been punctuated by rare flashes of brilliance, but has been largely overshadowed by his off-field antics.
