Henson eager to forget brawl
Cape Town - Welsh centre Gavin Henson wants to move on from an incident where he was involved in a bar brawl with a fellow Bath team-mate.
Henson told the Rugby Week website
he regrets the incident that saw him sent sprawling to the floor
in a city centre bar by a punch from team-mate Carl Fearns in July this year.
The two players were warned and fined by the English club, with Henson since challenging Fearns to a charity boxing match.GALLERY: Top 10 rugby bad boys
However, he says he is eager to draw a line beneath the incident.
"It wasn't a great start to my Bath career and I'd like to put that behind me," he told BBC Radio Bristol.
"Hopefully I can get out on the field and people will see me as just a rugby player. That wasn't a great moment but you have to have these team bonding sessions. Daft things seem to happen when I go out.
"It was a bit embarrassing and not a great thing for the club, but I like to think the squad grew closer together after that.
"I had a big headache that day and I went down quite easily. Maybe we will have a charity boxing match at the end of the year so I can get a bit of respect back."
Flyhalf/centre Henson, who has been capped 33 times for his country, joined Bath from London Welsh in June.
The 31-year-old has failed to live up to his early promise and was previously released from Cardiff Blues and French side Toulon for off-field indiscretions.
Fearns, 24, is a former England Under-20 loose forward. He joined Bath in 2011 from Sale Sharks.
