Gavin Henson announces shock rugby comeback

Rugby League side West Wales Raiders have reportedly signed former Wales rugby union star Gavin Henson.

Henson has never formally announced the end of his playing days, but the 38-year-old hasn’t played since being released by the Dragons at the end of last season.

West Wales Raiders, established in 2009, play in the third tier of rugby league in the UK, in Betfred League 1, with the likes of the North Wales Crusaders, Newcastle Thunder and Keighley Cougars.

The league is currently on ice amid the coronavirus pandemic but a meeting is being held between club owners at the end of the month to plot its return.
