Statistically it is certain that former Welsh winger and soon-to-be Dancing on Ice sensation, Gareth Thomas, cannot be rugby's 'only Gay in the village' but whether anyone comes out or not is surely a very personal decision and pressure from activists is hardly likely to help.
According to openly-gay kiwi TV presenter, Steve Gray, there have been several gay All Blacks and it is "time for one to stand up and be counted". He even claims to have slept with one player, although hardly adds to the credibility of the claim with the comment:
"Everyone always asks what his name was, but I can't remember. I don't know who the All Blacks are." Hmmm.
