Llanelli vs Swansea 2002 – Gavin Henson white hair, red card


first_imgThursday Feb 3, 2011 Llanelli vs Swansea 2002 – Gavin Henson white hair, red card Gavin Henson has hit the headlines again as he’s walked out on Saracens, heading to Toulon. It seems like an opportune time to post this amusing clip from 2002, and the highly charged Welsh derby when Henson was shown a straight red card. Stradey Park had many a fierce encounter in its day, but the 2002 derby between Llanelli and Swansea had a little something extra in it. Despite the scoreline ending in an emphatic 62-6 win for Llanelli, the tempers were running high all night. Swansea ended up having two players sent off, playing over half the match with just 13, as Gavin Henson was shown a straight red card for tossing Garan Evans into the advertising hoardings. Dean Thomas was then shown a second yellow for a high tackle. It was a humiliation for Swansea, and of course for Henson, who came out with a bit of a white-blue hairstyle that could only be upstaged by an act of, lets say youthful exuberance. The scenes that followed could have been far uglier, but his nimble footwork helped him out of that one pretty quickly. Between the hair and the incident, it was a night Henson will have done well to forget. Hes now hitting the papers again though as his surprise move from London to France means that hes actually further away from his kids, which was one of his original motivations to move to Saracens. Hes only played four times for the club, hardly setting the world alight and has yet to show the kind of form that would warrant Wales selection. Hes a talented player so perhaps the move to Toulon will do him good, and hell manage to force his way back into contention with Warren Gatlands national side before the Rugby World Cup later this year. Lets hope he leaves the peroxide at home though.Time: 02:06 Note: Thanks to ScrumV ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error See it to Believe it Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Experts explain what actually happens… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Leigh Halfpenny makes yet another… 26 WEEKS AGO Parisse alley-oop magic sets up brilliant… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.
