Here’s a tale and, more importantly, a photo, to keep the Brett Gosper
fan club at Pearson happy.
You may remember that, for some strange reason, Gosper not only featured
in the Diary’s Valentine’s Day ‘top tottie’ feature, but inspired a
mailbag panting for more photos of the hunk.
Well, here he is in a typical hunk-like pursuit - with grown men
pursuing him. Under the guise of charity, Gosper agreed to chair the
committee for the NABS Rugby Sevens Tournament this year. Of course, we
all know it was just an excuse to release this picture.
Actually, Gosper has some impressive rugby credentials. ‘An accomplished
centre,’ (it says here), Gosper played for the top Parisian side, Racing
Club de France (above) from 1981 to 1990. He also played sevens for the
French Barbarians (against the All Blacks), Italy(?) and even Australia.
It bodes well for the event which takes place on Sunday 28 April at
London’s Richmond Athletic ground. More than 40 teams will take part in
more than 90 games in a day. There are a few team places left, but
there’s plenty of room for supporters. Tickets cost pounds 2.50 for
adults and pounds 1 for children (pounds 100 for women from Pearson),
with car parking available.
Officially, Gosper says: ‘I can’t think of many other events where
people will get as much enjoyment from giving their bodies to raise
money.’ Hooey! Whatever happened to good old-fashioned kissing booths,
