Gavin Henson completes Saracens switch

Strictly Come Dancing star links up with Woollams based outfit

SARACENS have completed the signing of Wales international Gavin Henson.

Henson, who can play at full-back, fly-half or inside centre, is currently appearing on the BBC One show Strictly Come Dancing and he has been combining those commitments with training with Saracens at their Woollams base in St Albans.

The 28-year-old has not played for 18 months following injury and had to negotiate his release from his contract with Welsh club Ospreys to be able to complete his move to Saracens on a deal until the end of the current season.

Sarries made their move for Henson after losing influential goal-kicker Derick Hougaard to a season-ending Achilles tendon injury.
