Gavin Henson: Wales Breeds Metrosexuals Too


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)

Addendum: Just Jared in with some Ronaldo photos from GQ Portugal...

  1. 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!

  4. "Being really fruity" has worked for me, Gavin, but it involves more than a fake tan and shaving. I'd be happy to show you....

  10. 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
