Leigh Halfpenny the Welsh Lion
Whether you have been glued to The Lions 2013 Tour through love of the sport/men in small shorts or you have been forced to watch it by the rugby loving man in your life, there is one good reason to have watched. Leigh Halfpenny.
Born in Gorseinon, Wales in 1988, the 24 year old was named Player of the Match for the series-clinching victory against Australia and Player of the Series overall. The first British & Irish Lions squad to win a test series for 16 years. Nice work boys!
He racked up 21 of the 41 points that won the match and looked every inch the hero before, during and after every kick.
His boyish good looks and tousled hair combined with his incredible, drool-worthy physique and prowess on the field make him pretty hard to ignore.
Yes, this may be a slightly crass observation (as we pull ourselves together) but girls need eye candy too, and when they also have talent, we’re like putty in their hands.
