Sports Legends with Bevo – Ep #3 – David Rhys-Jones – The tough man of footy!

David Rhys-Jones was one of the real tough men of footy and still holds the record for being reported the most times throughout his career.
Despite this he was still a highly skilled footballer and went on to win the 1987 Norm Smith Medal for best on ground in Carlton’s Grand Final victory over the Hawks and in total he played 182 VFL/AFL games for Carlton and the Sydney Swans.
As I found out there is a real soft side to him as well, particularly with the love for his son Cooper who has a rare condition called Prader-Willi Syndrome.
Rhys has organised a 15 for 15 challenge to raise money for this very important charity where he interviews 15 different footballers in 15 days.
If you want to donate or find out more go to the David Rhys-Jones Facebook page.
We found out what he thought about Greg ‘Diesel’ Williams joining the Blues after Williams had previously broken his jaw, why it was so tough playing in the brutal 80’s and Rhys talked about the famous Battle of Britain exhibition match with North Melbourne that quickly became somewhat of a bloodbath.
