Former Wales captain Gareth Thomas is renting out his home for the Rugby World Cup
Vale of Glamorgan: Gareth Thomas (inset) is renting out his three-bedroom home throughout September and October
AFTER the revelation that English rugby legend Lewis Moody will be renting his family home to fans during the World Cup, former Wales captain Gareth Thomas is following suit – with his own set of quirky house rules.
Like Moody’s Wiltshire home, Thomas has listed his property on Airbnb at the price of £150 a night. The three-bedroom home is located in the village of St Brides Major in the picturesque Vale of Glamorgan. Less than an hour from Cardiff and within walking distance of the seaside, it’s sure to be a popular destination, with a five-nights minimum stay for up to six people.
Thomas will be there to welcome guests on arrival and is happy to have a “kickabout” at his first professional club Bridgend RFC – specifying that there’s “no pressure (and no England rugby shirts)”.
House rules include making “100% effort when Land of My Fathers gets played on game day”; not leaving any bad reviews of his book, Proud: My Autobiography; and ensuring his mum gets a cup of tea if she pops round.
Thomas is donating the rental income to Childline.
