Pro Rugby Player Sam Stanley Claps Back At Trolls Who Criticize His Engagement

We were so happy to report that pro rugby star Sam Stanley recently announced his engagement to his boyfriend of seven years, Laurence Hicks.

Many readers expressed their best wishes to the happy couple. 

And yet, a few trolls still find a way to let their voices be heard. 

Attitude spoke to Sam about his new engagement.

Who proposed and how did it happen?

Laurence proposed to me on our top terrace in Sicily over Easter. The views up there are stunning and as he said at the time, what better place to do it than the place we’ll be building a new life together.

Sam also took a moment to respond to trolls who criticized his relationship with an older man.
