SHEFFIELD, England -- Sheffield Eagles have received high profile support from the most famous homosexual stars in world sport including former NBA Star John Amaechi, Rugby League stars Ian Roberts and Gareth Thomas and English cricketer Steven Davies as they become the first ever sports club in the UK to wear a shirt brandishing an anti-homophobia slogan this weekend.
All four stars led the way in their respective sports, with Amaechi becoming the first openly gay NBA player while Roberts became the first openly gay Rugby player when he announced his sexuality with Thomas following in his steps in December 2009.
Steven Davies recently became the first openly gay cricketer and all four men have been quick to show their support for the Eagles in their efforts to support the RFL's anti-homophobia 'Tackle It!' campaign.
