WATCH:Ex All Black Zac Guildford speaks about his offending and mental illness

by Giga
Zac Guildford opened up about his own mental illness, being an ADHD diagnosis, and how that has affected his rugby career and life

Zac Guildford was only recently fined and convicted of fraud in a Wairarapa court. The conviction stems from the money he took from his grandfather and a friend. Over $100,000 in total, all of which was used to fuel his gambling addiction.

Guildford’s conviction was the latest in a long sequence of misdemeanours. He has spoken openly about his personal mental disorder, ADHD, and how it has affected his rugby career and life. He claimed that after making his All Blacks debut in 2009, he became ‘bored.’

It’s impossible to imagine this reality because he was living the dream of so many young rugby players who aspire to play for their country. However, mental illness is a serious condition that many people struggle to conquer.

Guildford’s interview with the New Zealand Herald is available below.
