The TAB's Mark Stafford sits down with some of New Zealand's most prolific and successful sports personalities to find out what makes them tick. This week the man behind the mic is All Black legend Sir John Kirwan.

Sir John Kirwan's career has taken him from Mangere to Italy, to Japan and back again. He was a revered figure on the field as an All Black winger and is perhaps even more highly regarded for his work in later life as an advocate for mental health. He invited Staf into his home for a coffee and to share stories from his varied life.
