    He sounds like a dote – I’m sure he’ll find a boyfriend without too much trouble.

    As for the Daily Mail – well it was quite clear they ran the story to counteract the poisonous publicity their Jan Moir column attracted. Surprised that Gareth Thomas admits this though.

  2. Ouch… better keep this one a secret. My boyfriend has the hots for him, and I don’t want to wind up dumped for a fitter model!

    As they say in Wales: “He`s bloody lovely”!!! You`ll have no problem meeting the right guy Gareth-and you`ll know when you do! My partner and I have been together for 38 years now.

  4. I never heard of this guy before this story, although I don’t follow rugby or live in wales. :P He sounds amazing, though. Best of luck to him!

  5. How do I apply?

  6. I’m obviously not his type! Good luck to him. Everyone deserves love.

  7. gosh i’m surprised. i’d’ve thought that they’d be beating a path to his door… oh to be a hot gay guy living in sth wales right now!!

  8. God I wish I had a man like him.

  9. Good on you Gareth! I hope you find that someone to share life with!

  10. Gareth, you’re going to need a private secretary to process applications.
    Is there an application form ? :)

    Good luck to you Gareth! I wish you all the happiness in the world, honey! It took a lot of courage to do what you just did.

    If anyone speaks to him please let him know that there is a 53 year old rugby fan (was taught by Clive Snell and Gareth Edwards)who would love to meet someday – maybe when I go to Swansea to see some of my family – I’m an ex-Porthcawl guy! There are lots of fit guys down by Rest Bay surfing and training ;-)
    Good Luck Gareth in all you do and I just know you will get all you want very soon. You will be a brilliant role model to the youngsters in Wales. BrightonDrJohn xxx

  13. Kudos to Graeth for this – and he is right, it is people like him coming out that will act as role models for younger guys and also help making the LGBT lifestyle more accepted.

    One thing – if he did walk down the road hand in hand with another guy – who, in their right mind, would challenge him? Well unless they have a death wish!

    I think Gareth Thomas and Donal Og Cusack need to become the new gay power-couple.

    Because let’s be honest Elton John and MyHusbandDavidFurnish live on another planet.

    Gareth is definitely a plum. not only in terms of (strappy) looks, but certainly in terms of bravery and being at peace with himself. I certainly would not mind to show the dashing Mr. Thomas around Cape Town and it’s surrounds. Time Out…Peace

    I must tell you this. A few years ago I was enjoying a lovely meal at Quay Four, a lovely waterside restaurant here in Cape Town’s famous Waterfront. We were chilling out and enjoying “rubbing sides” with all the beefcake around us, when my companion , then a Model Booking Agent, spotted a couple of his mates at a neighbouring table. One of the peeps at that table was a well-known South African Rugby player. This Rugby player had a reputation as a Bad Boy, and has since retired. There were rumours about this Bad Boy of Rugby that he was gay, rumours naturally that were denied. Now, for me, to each his own. However, on this day when my companion went over to the table, he came back saying that this Rugby Player told him that I was “quite good-looking, but serious”. The Rugby player was sitting with his ex-girlfriend at the time. My interest was mildly pricked, and since I had access to file pictures at the Newspaper I worked at, I pulled all the photos of this guy.
    During the time at the restaurant, I could not picture him as a player, since I am not interested in Rugby at all.
    But the weirdest part was, about nine months later, my companion at Quay Four had told me that he had run into this Rugby Player , and lo and behold, this man asked after “the good-looking, serious guy” whom he was sitting with. Me! I was seriously flattered, of course. Not that I do not get compliments at all, but the Rugby star in question is SOO YUMMY!!! I would love to be the Lock on his team:-)))
    As it turned out, I walked past this Rugby player suqsequently, in the Cape Town CBD, along with a very hunky male companion. I looked back and then walked on.

    But I have often wondered….

    Gareth should come to New York City where I could promise him a line of candidates longer than an American idol audition. I have an excellent track record as a yenta, and if I wasn’t already married…

  20. What a hunk. This pic is a million light-years better than that awful toothless one of him they first produced. He sets off a lot of my wild fantasies but, apart from being married, I’m probably too much of a pussycat for a guy like him. Inspite of his denials of toughness, I suspect he would do a lot of damage, sigh, drool…Any prospective beau had better get training!!!

  21. Great interview – recommended

  22. Now boys get in line and dont push(unless he wants you too!!!!)

  23. Gareth is hot, hot, hot. My tackle is getting harder and harder by the second! Rugby players are different class to namby pamby football dopes. Sh*g you senseless but still buy you a beer and call you sir.

    And South African bloke, who was this rugby player – was it Van de Westaven? Was it? Was it?

    me, Van de Westaven, Gareth, Dan Carter and Dallaglio – now that is what I call a five aside. get the Deep Heat out boys, everyone in the showers!

  24. Da iawn Gareth – Cymro Glan Gloyw Hoyw. Hen bryd i’r byd rygbi cydnabod ein bodolaeth.
    (message in Welsh)

  25. If you wish you had a man like him, be more like him. Think about it.

  26. so what is your type Gareth?

  27. David Bailey 24 Oct 2010, 8:45pm

    Gareth – Back in Woolly wales lets meet up Gareth David

  28. David Bailey 24 Oct 2010, 8:47pm

  29. May 2011 bring you closer to your heart’s desire, Gareth.

    Thanks for your continued support.

  30. Rawr! Grrr. What more can I say? :-)

  31. Manny Espinola 5 Jan 2011, 6:38pm

    I wonder if Gareth fancies Adam Lambert? In my fantasies I pair him up with Reichen Lemkuhl, but Rei is already taken. Besides, I think Adam could use a little TLC from someone big and solid and not jaded and probably refreshingly romantic.

  32. QUEERS ARE NAUSEATING CREEPS.IS HE GOING TO WASH THE SKID MARKS OUT OF HIS BOYFREINDS UNDERPANTS OR VICE VERSA?

  33. IS GARETH THOMAS TOP OR BOTTOM.WHAT DOES TOP DO IF BOTTOM HAS A FOLLOW THROUGH?

  34. HASN’T HE REALISED YET.HE LEFT HIS WIFE HAD A FEW SORDID ENCOUNTERS IN SOHO AND MOST LIKELY BE DOING IT FOR THE REST OF HIS LIFE.WHAT A WANKER!

    1. Translation: I’M GAY BUT NOT SURE HOW TO DEAL WITH IT SO IMMA JUST GO ON A WEBSITE AND PROCLAIM HOW NOT GAY I AM IN THE HOPES IT’LL ACTUALLY DO SOMETHING HURRR DURRR

      Seek help, mate.
