Henson to miss rest of Wales' internationals

8:58 am on 13 November 2008

The Wales rugby coach Warren Gatland says that centre Gavin Henson will miss the remainder of their November international series with an Achilles injury.

Henson was forced to withdraw from the side that lost 20-15 to South Africa last weekend in Cardiff.

Henson went to see a specialist and the diagnosis has ruled him out of Tests with Canada, New Zealand and Australia.

Henson has suffered badly with injuries during his career, the latest causing him to miss the start of this season following ankle surgery at the end of April.

A previous knee injury also wrecked his 2006/7 season, while Henson has also suffered with shoulder problems.
