Fans have rediscovered Top Gear playing car rugby, and it’s brilliant

Jeremy Clarkson and James May play car rugby using Kia Cee’ds and Kia Sportages at Twickenham Stadium and the Stig as a referee in a Vauxhall Astra Police car.

Reacting to the video, one fan wrote: “I love how rugby is more violent than football, but car football is more violent than car rugby.”

Another commented: “That stadium could have been sold out for this.:

A third fan said: “This is honestly one of the best things I have ever seen. One more thing to add to my list if I ever win the lottery.”

Another wrote: “I miss those old times being funny and being Jeremy Clarkson”

Five rugby lads who are out and proud – including Exeter Chiefs lock

In honour of Pride month, RUCK wanted to celebrate five out and proud rugby stars. Their focus? How we can collectively align to take action that drives change on and off the pitch.

1. Nigel Owens

All fans, players, and anyone who knows anything about rugby will know the name, Nigel Owens. Besides having the record for most test matches refereed, Owens has earned a reputation as one of the top rugby referees around the world.

The Welshman is also a TV personality and a devoted activist for the LGBT cause, winning “Gay Sports Personality of the Decade” at the Stonewall awards ceremony in London back in 2015.

“It’s such a big taboo to be gay in my line of work, I had to think very hard about it because I didn’t want to jeopardise my career,” he confessed.

“Coming out was very difficult and I tried to live with who I really was for years. I knew I was ‘different’ from my late teens, but I was just living a lie.”

Refereeing in as sport like rugby also hindered his decision.

“When I became a referee, it became clear that there was nobody in the sport who was gay.

“The rugby world is very heterosexual and masculine, and this made things difficult.

“Although that’s not to say that the sport is openly homophobic. It was just never an environment where I felt like I could be myself.”
