Gavin Henson will be keen to establish himself at Bath this year

The duo were warned and fined by Bath after Fearns punched Henson in The Pig and Fiddle during a pre-season social evening just a month into the Wales centre's new contract with the club.

Henson has challenged Fearns to a charity boxing match as he reflected on an incident he would like to forget as quickly as possible.

"It wasn't a great start to my Bath career and I'd like to put that behind me," Henson told BBC Radio Bristol.

"Hopefully I can get out on the field and people will see me as just a rugby player.

"That wasn't a great moment but you have to have these team bonding sessions. Daft things seem to happen when I go out.

"It was a bit embarrassing and not a great thing for the club, but I like to think the squad grew closer together after that.

"I had a big headache that day and I went down quite easily. Maybe we will have a charity boxing match at the end of the year so I can get a bit of respect back."
