Gareth Thomas, best known as 'Alfie' joins Danny Kelly in the studio to give us an insight into his Rugby career. The Welsh player was once the most capped Welsh Rugby Union player, with 100 test match appearences. He was also voted one of the most influential gay people in the UK along with winning Stonewall's hero of the year award in 2010. Listen to his interview here.
Gareth Thomas had it all. He was a national hero, a sporting icon. He was a leader of men, captain of Wales and the British Lions. To him, rugby was an expression of cultural identity, a sacred code. It was no mere ball game. It gave him everything, except the freedom to be himself. This is the story of a man with a secret that was slowly killing him. Something that might devastate not only his own life but the lives of his wife, family, friends and teammates.
