You got to hand it to Keegan Hirst, the man’s got excellent timing.
Just this weekend, Keegan came out, and, as of Sunday, became the first openly gay rugby league player to take the pitch. Now a cheeky nude photo, no doubt taken before Hirst came out for one of those ubiquitous naked calendars, has hit the Internet.

Keegan said that he’d never “been out as a gay guy on the pull” and that he doesn’t “know yet how these things work.” By the looks of it, he’ll have no trouble at all getting in to the swing of things.
