Being Dad - Brett Kimmorley

As tough dads go, Brett Kimmorley has to be one of the toughest we have ever met. 

Not just as an NRL football player who refuses to give up but as a dad who has had his resilience tested pretty much to the max.

Brett has 4 daughters who he parents alone, after his wife Sharnie died of brain cancer in 2017.  

Alex chats to Brett about how the ups and downs of his career, helped him deal with the devastating loss of the mother of his kids.
