A gay rugby player in Ireland says he may never again play the sport he loves after a brutal homophobic beating that left him with a shattered ankle and a dangerous eye injury. Evan Somer, 23, said he was attacked after an evening out in Dublin last April, and he recently told Ireland television program Claire Byrne Live he may never again be able to play rugby again because of the horrific attack. Somers posted to social media the attack happened along Dame Street in Dublin in the early morning hours of Saturday, April 10. He said he was trying to flag a taxi after visiting The George gay bar when he was approached by a man hurling antigay slurs.
