Toulon lift Henson ban

Toulon have decided not to sack Wales centre Gavin Henson and have reintegrated him into their playing squad.

A number of European publications and websites reported last week that Henson had been fired from the French club following a night-club incident involving other team members. Toulon have since confirmed that while Henson was banned for one week for indiscipline, he will not be sacked.

However, it remains to be seen whether Henson can play alongside senior members of the squad. It would also come as a surprise to see him getting a contract extension. His current short-term contract will expire in the near future.
