Under-fire Cardiff Blues centre Gavin Henson will learn his fate today after his latest off-field controversy.
The 30-year-old has already issued a statement apologising for drinking and "behaving inappropriately" on a flight from Glasgow to Cardiff on Saturday morning.
Henson, who has won 34 caps for Wales, revealed he went out drinking after he was a substitute in his side's 31-3 defeat by Glasgow before continuing on during the early-morning flight.
Henson was suspended after an incident, while airline Flybe has also begun an investigation, with the Blues management set to meet this morning to discuss their next move.
His contract with the Blues runs out at the end of the season, and it would appear he is unlikely to get an extension regardless of the outcome of the meeting.
