8 September 2019: Henry Grey shares his journey of growing up in Samoa, his dad passing away when he was 9 and the strong work ethic he gained when living with his Auntie. While Grey was definitely a good worker, his real passion was playing rugby, and he was talented enough to be granted a scholarship to St Patrick's College, Wellington. Grey shares his process of coming to terms with the reality of concussion, the prospect of his rugby dreams coming to an end, adjusting to the news that he and his now wife Chloé Nollen had a baby girl on the way and how his focus shifted to putting his daughters future first. With host Hamish Coleman-Ross and psychotherapist Kyle MacDonald, thanks to NZ on Air.

Listen above.
