Henson feels cursed after latest injury

11:45 am on 2 April 2009

The Welsh rugby centre Gavin Henson says he feels cursed and he's wondering about his future in the game after apparently dashing his hopes of touring South Africa with the British and Irish Lions.

Henson suffered ligament damage to his right ankle in a club match last weekend, and although he doesn't need surgery, he'll be sidelined for four to six weeks.

Henson's career has been blighted by injuries which ruled him out of the 2007 World Cup, and on the Lions New Zealand tour four years ago he played in only one the three Tests.

The Lions' 10-match South African tour starts on the 30th of May.
