Text:The number of players from around the country being assembled for next year's Bingham Cup – an international gay rugby competition – is growing, but organisers are still keen to hear from more people. "We've got about twelve people committed to going overseas from Auckland, we think we've got at least three or four people from Wellington wanting to go, plus we're still wanting to get more people," says David Morris, captain of Auckland's Ponsonby Heroes team. Dean Knight is the Heroes' representative to IGRAB, an international network of gay rugby clubs that is organising the Bingham Cup. He says they definitely want to go to London with a team that can truly be from New Zealand, and not just Auckland. "It's going to be a big event," he says. "In IGRAB there are about 16-17 teams throughout the world, and more forming, particularly in America where gay rugby seems to be the new phenomenon."
