Gavin Henson: Wales Breeds Metrosexuals Too

Gavin_hensen_shirtless

Like David Beckham and Cristiano Ronaldo, Welsh Rugby pin-up Gavin Henson is another European athlete given to shirtless glossy mag covers and showing off: “I love rugby and I love watching soccer as well, but I hate the fact that soccer is known for being a bigger game than rugby. My goal in my rugby career is to try to get rugby bigger than soccer — and, if that means being really fruity, so be it. I don’t know about the fake tan, but there are a couple of boys who use sun beds now and shave their legs. It’s catching on.”

The Guardian asks, Is there more to come from the man who treats the international rugby stage like most young men treat the high street as he alternates between wearing gold and silver boots in which to parade his startling coiffures and faux tan? Henson: “There probably will be because I like being different. That’s a big part of who I am.” (photo via tottyland)

    While Becks and Ronaldo are hot, they were both defeated in my King of the Hardwood competition (sort of a stud version of the NCAA hoops tournament) going on over at one of your sponsors sites – Outsports!

    Gavin Henson is soooooo fit. He is the best thing to come out of Welsh rugby in a long time, apart from the Grand Slam and the Celtic League winners (with GH playin on both of those winning teams). So what if he shaves his legs, uses fake tan and so on. He absolutely stunning and i defy anyone who says any different. CYMRU AM BYTH

    Gavin henson is a total idiot, and he should not of been welcome back to the welsh squad he is a disgrace to us and to the welsh team after slaying them like he did, kick him off the welsh team i say we are doing fine without him, infact after he walked on tot he pitch the game went down hill
