With Gavin Henson's future up in the air after his latest off-field incident, ESPNscrum takes a look at some of the incidents in the controversial centre's past.
October 2005: Henson releases a book entitled My Grand Slam Year chronicling Wales' Six Nations success and his experiences on the Lions tour of New Zealand. Comments about other players - including Martyn Williams and Colin Charvis - and life in the Wales camp mean he is forced to apologise in front of his team-mates.
Henson said of Charvis in the book: "I found Charvis a difficult character to work out and never really got on with him. He was captain of Wales and seemed to be on a power trip. He tried to give me advice about being professional off the pitch but there was an air of superiority to it."
December 2005: Henson is cited for elbowing Leicester prop Alex Moreno in a Heineken Cup game between the two sides, Henson is initially banned for 10 weeks and two days, which is reduced to seven weeks on appeal.
December 2007: Henson is charged with disorderly conduct over his behaviour on a train after helping Ospreys beat Harlequins in the Anglo-Welsh Cup. The case is later dropped.
April 2011: Having left the Ospreys for Saracens and then moved on to Toulon, things appear to be looking up for Henson when he scores a try on his debut for the French club. But after his second appearance against Toulouse he is involved in an altercation with two team-mates in a nightclub and is suspended for a week.
April 2012: Henson is sacked by the Cardiff Blues following an incident on the flight back from Scotland after their match against Glasgow Warriors the previous night. He later apologises for drinking and "behaving inappropriately" but it is not enough to save him from being dismissed.
