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.
