Cardiff Blues, Scarlets, Wales, Lions, and Barbarians player Matthew Rees, a key member of the 2008 and 2012 Grand Slam teams, is the most-capped hooker of all time for the Wales national side and has captained both his region and his country. However, top-flight rugby is not all there is to his story. Matthew talks frankly of finding out who his real father was at age 20, and the impact it had on his relationship with his family. He also reveals what he went through after discovering he had testicular cancer at the peak of his career, and how the diagnosis and treatment affected him. Matthew Rees' is an uplifting and dramatic story which will inspire even non-rugby fans.
