Henson joins Saracens

GAVIN HENSON has vowed to let his rugby "do all the talking" after signing for Saracens.

But there is no indication at this stage when 28-yearold Welshman will feature for his new club after quitting the Ospreys with seven months of his contract remaining.

Neither the Welsh region nor Saracens have divulged specific details of the highprofile move, such as how long his new deal is for or whether compensation or a transfer fee was paid.

And there is the added complication of his commitments to the BBC's ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ series, which could seriously restrict training and playing opportunities until Christmas.

Henson, capped 31 times by Wales and a 2005 Test Lion in New Zealand, has not played rugby since going on unpaid leave from the Ospreys 18 months ago.
