The Ospreys today moved to quash rumours of Gavin Henson’s early retirement from rugby.

Henson today reported for duty as anticipated, receiving treatment for an ongoing groin injury, before asking to speak with club management to help scotch false rumours regarding his retirement.

He is due to receive further treatment tomorrow morning (Tuesday).

Speaking today, Gavin Henson said:

“I’ve certainly been having difficulties with the recurring injury but I have absolutely no intention of quitting the game. I’m receiving the best medical care to help me address the injury problem, and I’m sure that I’ll be able to put it behind me in the very near future.”

Ospreys Managing Director, Mike Cuddy, commented:

“It’s been very difficult for Gavin having to deal with various rumours about his retirement at a time when he is trying to recover from injury and get match fit. Gavin Henson has played a significant part in the success of the Ospreys to date, and we’re looking forward to seeing him perform on the pitch again next season. He is a genuine talent and an asset to both the Ospreys and the Welsh team, and while I know that he was extremely disappointed to miss out on the recent Lions tour, he is looking forward to re-entering the top tier of the game again in the coming season and beyond.”
