Beau Ryan sits down for a one on one with Sam Thaiday

When Sam Thaiday announced his retirement, at a retirement home late last week, he certainly raised a few eyebrows and broke a few hearts..

Thaiday was visiting a retirement village in Brisbane when he chose to make the announcement dressed as an aged version of himself in a wig and make up.

“I’ve always been a bit different in everything I’ve done — but I’ve always been true to myself and done things my way,” Thaiday told at the time of his retirement.

The former Brisbane skipper and Queensland representative had already been told by coach Wayne Bennett he would not be offered a new deal beyond his current contract.

This week Beau Ryan sat down with Sam Thaiday in his own home for a raw and real chat..
