Aviva Premiership newcomers London Welsh have confirmed the signing of controversial Wales centre Gavin Henson today.

Henson, 30, has been without a club since April after being sacked by Cardiff Blues over his behaviour on a flight returning from a game in Glasgow.

But Henson worked with Exiles coach Lyn Jones during his time at the Ospreys and has been given the latest in a series of chances to get his career back on track.

Jones said: "Gavin has a great talent but over the past three or four seasons he has not realised his full potential for a number of reasons that are well documented.

"I sincerely hope and believe he can now draw a line under that period and move forward again with London Welsh."
