Henson extends Bath stay

Former Wales international Gavin Henson has agreed a one-year extension to his contract with Aviva Premiership club Bath.

The 32-year-old, who can play both centre positions as well as fly-half and full-back, has scored one try in 20 appearances this season and turned in a man-of-the-match display in last week's Amlin Challenge Cup quarter-final win against Brive.

"I'm very happy to be staying. This is a top club and I feel excited about what this group of players can achieve," Henson told Bath's official website.

"It is great to be part of it and I feel proud at the thought of playing more rugby for Bath."

Bath coach Mike Ford added: "Gavin is a real professional. Everything he does is about being as well prepared as possible for every session and match.

"He is experienced, talented and versatile in equal measure, so we are very pleased to have him with us for another year."
