Rugby Is Gay

Coming Out Makes Gay Rugger Jed Hooper The New Gareth Thomas

After Gareth Thomas announced his immediate retirement from rugby, we worried that we’d have to find some other openly gay, Welsh professional rugby player to drool over look up to. Luckily, Old Redcliffians captain Jed Hooper just came out as gay, so crisis averted.

Hooper came out in part to stay with a guy who refused to date closeted men. Young gay rugger comes out to land hot boyfriend—awesome. In his own words, Hooper calls himself, “likeable, merry and aggressive.” We’d like to find out firsthand, if that whole boyfriend thing doesn’t work out.
