Rhys Thomas - My Life. 'There is a way out.'

'Incomprehensible demoralisation' are two words that Rhys Thomas uses in this interview with Simon Scott-Nelson, to describe the way his life once was.

Rhys is a seven-times capped, former international Welsh rugby forward (WRU.) A man of physical stature whose rugby career was cut short through a life changing injury.


After suffering a heart attack at the age of 29 Rhys was eventually fitted with a pump that currently helps to run his heart.


Losing his career and not dealing with his emotions led Rhys to alcoholism and to some extremely dark places.
