Yet Another Rugby Player Supports Gay Marriage

Rising New Zealand Rugby star David Pocock is the latest athlete to come out in support of gay marriage. He tells the New Zealand Herald:

"I don't see what the big deal is with the whole gay marriage debate in Australia...These are the prejudices that you have to challenge and break down. Emma [his partner] and I decided not to get legally married until our gay friends could do the same."

Rugby is suddenly looking like a pretty fascinating sport. Check out Pococks fellow English rugby player Ben Cohen on the August cover of Out's sports issue.
