After the breaking news this lunchtime, we want you to tell us whether Henson should have been sacked by Cardiff Blues or not.
Henson’s problems with alcohol and allegedly unacceptable behaviour left Cardiff in no doubt that he should be dismissed. His all-night binge in Glasgow continued on the plane where he apparently began to disturb other passengers and became aggressive. He has now been sacked as well as banned from all FlyBe flights for 6 months, his second alcohol related incident within a year after he was suspended by Toulon for an altercation with teammates in a nightclub.
Yet the Blues have already had Tom James and Ceri Sweeney arrested this season, with both going unpunished by the club. What’s more, although Henson was dismissed, his teammate Casey Laulala has tweeted that the incident has been “blown out of proportion”. With whispers on Twitter that the club were unable to afford Henson in the first place and were looking to offload him, has this incident been an excuse?
