AFLPA interviews: JTH with David Parkin

This season I am going to be interviewing a VFL/AFL footballer for the AFLPA.

Here’s a couple of snippets from my interview with David Parkin – who, as we all know, is very good at stringing words together. The interview will be shown in its entirety on Thursday:

It was really good to hear David reflect on so many topics.
