For this week’s Sports Stud, I decided to highlight Australian rugby union player, David Pocock. He’s 24-years old and 230 lbs of hotness. He was a finalist for Young Australian of the Year this year and in the summer, spoke openly about being against homophobia and being in support of marriage equality. In fact, he stated that he would not get married until it was legal for gays to do so in Australia. Here’s what he said on an Australian show called Q&A:

“The biggest thing in this debate is that we’re dealing with people here. And how can you blame someone for what they are? People don’t choose their sexuality and we marginalise the LGBTI community for what they are. I think that this is a conversation that needs to be had and that needs to be discussed compassionately and actually come to something that’s reasonable. And in my mind, that’s marriage for everyone. We’ve moved forward on so many issues and this is the next progression….A lot of gay people may not believe in the institution of marriage, but I believe it needs to be an option. How can we be challenging homophobia when we’re saying. ‘You’re equal to me but you’re separate. I’ll go sign this [marriage] document here but you can go have your civil union,’ which is the same, but not, really.”

Check out his sexy pictures as well as a video clip from what he said on Q&A below. Seriously, with his bootylicious and beefy bod, Pocock is one of the sexiest Sports Studs I’ve posted about all year.

Woof! Check out those pecs and abs!

In this one, his biceps can barely be contained in that shirt.

Super sexy legs. Grrr!

His booty can barely be contained in those speedos. Love it!

Just helping a buddy out with his stretches.

Not the best quality photo, but you can still appreciate his incredible body.

Amazing legs & bubble butt – I’m sure the speedo company is happy he’s wearing those!
