Gavin Henson unveiled at WRU Kit Launch

Twas gone 11 o’clock on a sunny Wednesday morning and all the local Welsh Media had arrived for yet another Welsh Rugby Union kit launch.

In previous years some of the players adorned the new kit in various places like um…. in the Millennium Stadium…..on the pitch…… or in the changing rooms. Last year they turned the tables and got all the welsh media to wear the kit instead of the players!
So this year how could they make an impact and not do something that predictable this time!?!?

Yep – you guessed it (or maybe you just didnt!) but to unveil a 100ft poster hanging from the side of The Millennium Stadium featuring Gavin Henson!
Henson hasn’t actually played for Wales now for over 18 months and is currently on unpaid leave from The Ospreys.

So it seemed a bizarre choice to select a player, whom no longer seems to play for his Country but seems more interested in appearing in TV reality shows like 71 Degrees North and Strictly Come Dancing!

Maybe he’s swapped the Scrum for a Scrumba!

It now seems that the whole affair could be deemed a major success for the WRU and Under Armour as its rumoured sales of new shirts topped the £2 million mark in just a few days! (PS Who is Gavin off to play for this week??)
