Good on you Gareth. The RL communities amazing ability is to accept people as they are. History speaks for itself. It dosnet take long for a few ignorant voices to be drowned out. Its what makes RL special. If you can tackle, pass and sometimes kick then we dont give a tap what colour, creed sexuality you are. And if you can beat them under then you can call yourself a god in my books.

clearly not a proper rugby league person
PROUD TO BE A MEMBER OF http://www.rugbyleaguecares.org/ and http://www.walesrugb...-wales-for-2013
Predictions for the future -
Crusaders RL to get a franchise for 2012 onwards -WRONG
Widnes Vikings also to get a franchise - RIGHT
Crusaders RL to do the double over Widnes and finish five places ahead of them -WRONG
Widnes Vikings NOT to dominate rugby league in years to come! STILL TO COME

I promise to pay �10 to the charity of Bomb Jacks choice if Widnes Millionaires finish above the battling underdogs Crusaders RL. I OWE A TENNER!

This wasn't on air but when during a break on the Real Radio phone in on Wednesday, he said to the presenter that he didn't want to talk about rugby union, he wanted to talk rugby league. He also said he wanted the questioning to go towards talking about the development of junior RL in Wales. He's committed.
About time I updated this.

12:34, had trouble finding it on the listen again feature, then realised that was broken and all the files were the same hour

Here it is if anyone wants a listen: Skip to approx. 34 minutes in

I seriously the game uses him as an ambassador or whatever after he retires. This is an opportunity to good to miss. We have let too many jewels leave our game without a fight. Hanley, Edwards, Offiah, Farrell etc have gone doing other things when we could have used them to promote the game. I dont really rate Thomas as a player, but he is 36 years old and not played much League. However he has the potential to open the game up to many people from different backgrounds. Will our game once again waste this chance?

But he has to want to do it aswell.

If you use "should of", "would of" or "could of", you are a moron.

Article in the Independent:

http://www.independe...ee-2046501.html

It appears in the union section on the website so naturally it contains the lie about him being the first professional rugby player to come out.

He has never been one to shirk a challenge , I've wanted to see him play League for a long time, as I think it could do wonders for the game here, but would have prefered if he had done it about 3 years earlier.
Normally don't listen to Talkshite's sensationalist bull but good to see him getting out there and promoting it.
