  1. God help Gavin Henson when he steps out on the pitch, the other side will do him no favours, it’s a vastly different sport, and League is brutally unforgiving, I hope it goes well for him, but he really needs to be psychologically prepared for the sheer unremitting intensity. There is nowhere to hide onthe pitch, out of position you stand out like a sore thumb and they attack you all the more, that is sapping, if your confidence drops even slightly, they’re on you! At 29 it’s brutal, at 39, get in the paracetamol now, the gels, unguents, bandages, and hot bath salts. It’s a tremendously bold move! Respect for having the confidence to do it!
