Wakes rugby team expressed solidarity with former captain


Wales’ national rugby teams will sport rainbow laces in support of their former captain Gareth Thomas, who was
abused for being gay two weeks ago. The Welsh Rugby Team confirmed the men’s and women’s squads will don Stonewall’s rainbow laces for Thomas in both their games (against South Africa and Canada respectively) in the sign of solidarity with Thomas. “Wales & Wales Women will again support @StonewallCymru #RainbowLacesDay campaign & show their support to former captain @gareththomas14 by wearing #RainbowLaces in their fixtures this weekend,” the Welsh Rugby Union confirmed via Twitter. Thomas praised his old team for wearing the laces, posting on Twitter: “And so the support for LGBT continues.Thank you from the whole community..🌈🌈.”
