A rugby competition player has denied the use of a homophobic stain on an opponent, claiming that he & # 39; just tried to fire the boys & # 39; during a competition.
Manly Sea Eagles NRL's Joel Thompson was criticized after appearing to have made a discriminatory sentence in the 68th minute of the Sea Eagles and Titans NRL game on Friday night.
Thompson, who supports the organization of the & # 39; State of Mind & # 39 ;, is furious about the claims being made against him.
& # 39; No, no, I definitely did not do that. I was just trying to fire the boys. It probably looks like this, but it wasn't, & Thompson said The Sydney Morning Herald.
& # 39; It was definitely aimed at the boys. I just tried to fire them.
& # 39; I don't think I would have said that. I was just caught up in the moment. It looks bad, but it wasn't, & he said.
No complaint was made against him because referees cannot confirm the alleged accusation.
Thompson shared a message with Twitter after the game claimed that people should & # 39; relax & # 39; and stated that the team rebounds after their 18 – 36 loss & # 39 ;.

& # 39; People relax, I clearly said & # 39; fake & # 39; people who are always looking for something to be indignant about. That loss hurts, we bounce back, & he tweeted.
Last year, Thompson joined other players on the NRL float at the Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras festival in Sydney.
& # 39; It doesn't matter what your background, race, gender or religion is; everyone should feel included, & he said NRL News.
& # 39; For the NRL, change starts with us. We are a big part of the community and I want to be part of it, my wife Amy and I are really looking forward to it, & he said in 2018.
