At the start of the 06/07 season he was spotted by English side Pertemps Bees and made his debut as a substitute versus Sedgley Park. Henderson then left Pertemps Bees before the end of the year due to family matters after scoring just 3 tries and is currently not signed to a club for 07/08 season, although Pertemps Bees head coach Steve Williams commented that he could see no reason why Henderson wouldn't return, however this was not to be the case and Henderson was not part of the Pertemps Bees squad for 07/08.
