Mr Sheridan said he was standing up to support others, particularly men, who were battling with their emotional well-being.

“I’ve had a ton of things over a great deal of years that I’ve held inside and as a result of what’s occurred over the most recent few weeks it’s made me put delay on my life.”

“Being in the game that we are, particularly rugby class, and simply any game as a rule for a male, to open up is a truly extreme errand in itself.

“My recommendation to put out there is any man, whatever calling you’re in, don’t be embarrassed to connect.

“On the off chance that it’s not conversing with an expert, seize a companion or a relative and get things out into the open.”
