At Now, we’re a little bit in love with former Scottish rugby union player, Thom Evans. Ok, that may be an understatement.

That face, that hunky torso…oh, and let’s not forget those incredible dance moves, as demonstrated on 2014’s Strictly Come Dancing.

Question is though, how MANLY is Thom?

We challenged the 30-year-old star to complete our Now Man Test, and the results are hilarious.

Watch our very exclusive video to see Thom in action!

From bashing out 30 seconds worth of press-ups (he managed a staggering 38 in total!), to revealing his best chat-up line…or should we say chat-up move, Mr Evans left us VERY impressed.

Well, let’s be honest, we didn’t expect anything less.

He even let us on exactly how much chest hair he has, because well, c’mon, it’s pretty important to make sure everything’s all in order on the torso front…

As well as all this, Thom proved his manliness by lifting up 2014 Women’s Rugby World Cup champ, Natasha Hunt. Ahh, lucky gal eh!?

Now’s writer Lucy also wanted to see how many rugby balls Thom could hold. Whilst we could only manage about four, Thom managed to hold a staggering nine balls. That’s rather a lot…

Check out the video to find out Now’s manliness rating for Thom.

Thom was part of the Coca-Cola rugby exchange, which took place on August 3 in front of Tower Bridge in London. Alongside Thom was former England rugby player, Mike Tindall, 36, as well as two 2014 Women’s rugby champs – Natasha and Emily Scarratt.

Coca-Cola is using its sponsorship of Rugby World Cup 2015 to inspire people to be active and give rugby a try. As part of this it’s giving away up to one million rugby balls. To find out more go to
