All Blacks lock Brodie Retallick took a hiatus from rugby in 2017 to spend time with his family after the devastating premature death of his second child. 

“We already had one daughter before then so it had a big impact on us,” he said in an interview with Sky Sport.

Retallick said it was the reason he didn’t join the team on the tour of South Africa and bowed out of playing for the remainder of the year.

Brodie Retallick has opened up on the impact of the premature death of his son.

“It’s easy to get caught up in this environment that rugby’s the be all and end all but we’re all humans outside of this team and … everyone’s got things going on. Some things that might have seemed like a big problem before then are not so big anymore and you just carry on and move on.”
