Opening Up

Nigel Owens is recognised as the best ref on the planet – renowned for his balance of both control and humour on the field.

What hasn’t been so well appreciated is the struggle he has had to come to terms with his sexuality.

On Desert Island Discs yesterday he opened up about his personal struggles.

It is well worth listening to –

Brave man and this only adds to the respect that the rugby world has for him.

He tells that he attempted suicide – rugby would be a lot poorer had he succeeded.

Respect as always Nigel
