In the fifth episode of the Rugby League United mental fitness podcast, George spends a fascinating hour in the company of Wigan and Great Britain legend Denis Betts, who discuss how the power of sport saved his life after a troubled childhood on the streets of Salford. The 1995 Man of Steel, who won every domestic honour with Wigan during the club’s extraordinary era of dominance in the late-80s and early 90s, chats about how the culture at Central Park shaped him not only as a player but also as a man. Betts, who captained England in the 1995 World Cup final, gives a raw insight into the unforgiving macho nature of sport which forced mental health and fitness completely off the radar and discusses all things from trust, cultivating friendships, living in the moment and the importance of giving. The series is produced by the independent charity Rugby League Cares and is available to watch every Thursday and to download as a podcast from Spotify, Apple and all major providers.
