Recently out rugby star Gareth Thomas has spoken about the life after being open about his sexuality and the abuse he has since received from fans within his sport.

Last December Thomas was the first professional British rugby player to come out within the macho environment of Rugby.

Speaking about the anti-gay chants he received at a match in Castleford last month he said: “When I was on the field at Castleford I could hear some chants from a small section of the crowd.

“It wasn’t very nice and I was pretty hurt by what I could hear.

I’m only human and I can’t deny I was hurt. I think the RFL have taken action against Castleford over their fans and I’ve been told there were people in the crowd telling those chanting to shut up.”

The Crusaders star, 35, added: “Perhaps we need to go through this so that those few people realise no one else will stand for it and then it hopefully won’t happen to the next person who comes out.”
