Gray has since suggested that such is the all-encompassing nature of the rugby culture in New Zealand, it may ‘not be a place a gay man would want to be.’ But what a statement it would be if a leading player from the world’s most famous team would follow the lead of former Wales and Lions star Gareth Thomas and admit they were gay – especially when so many other high profile sports continually fail to tackle the issue and as a result discourage sportsmen to come out.
Common sense suggests that many gay men have played international rugby and are currently doing so now. It is a shame that fear of reprisal, ridicule or even loss of commercial income would prevent them from coming out. They, like Thomas, may find support where they expected isolation. But you fear there is more chance of Wales hosting their World Cup clash with England than an All Black breaking cover.
WHAT A SWEET DREAM INDEED.
Always a fun show to work on!
FUCKING AWFUL FOR ALL. JUST SO SO SAD.
Two teenagers have been charged with murdering Wellington journalist Phillip Cottrell.
Mr Cottrell, 43, died in Wellington Hospital after he was attacked as he walked home from work about 5.30am on Saturday.
In the last few minutes police have said they have charged two teenagers, aged 17 and 19, with murder. They are due to appear in Wellington District Court today. Police have not named the men.
Earlier today a 17-year-old was charged with assault in connection with the attack. Manuel Renera Robinson, 17, was due to appear in Wellington District Court this morning on that charge.
And police this morning said they had located another man, Nicho Allan Waipuka, 19, who they were searching for last night.
The murder arrests follows a raid at an Avalon home yesterday afternoon.
“These arrests follow an extensive amount of inquiries carried out by the investigation team over the past few days, however there is still a large number of inquiries to be made and we continue to need help from the public,” he said.
