Someone managed to clip up some footage of Gavin Henson playing Rugby League for the side, he didn’t get his hands on the ball much, but he did manage to perform his kicking duties well, as well as putting in a good tackle or two on the ball.
He is almost 40 now, so it is impressive to see him performing at this level at his age.
Here is the footage of the Welshman in action, you can still see he is the centre of attention in his pink boots!
