Grayson Hart

Garyson Hart shirtless

The Twitter world sat up and took notice of Waratah’s halfback Grayson Hart this week, and I think we can all see why. Sure, he has an angelic face and a body built for sinning on, under and around, and beside. And ok, so he has a light yet oh-so-masculine smattering of leg hair a […]
