Glory Game - The Joost van der Westhuizen Story

Glory Game - The Joost van der Westhuizen Story

To live the live of a legend. To be handed a death sentence. To discover true courage. To live life.
  • Wish I had a ball...

South African rugby hero Joost van der Westhuizen was diagnosed with motor neuron disease, a crippling illness that attacks the central nervous system, causing disability and death. But, where others might struggle to accept their lot, Joost has tackled it with dignity and humour. In his battle against the disease, he fought for his life, and for the future of his fellow sufferers, and rediscovered his humanity. More than a team player, Joost has become Man of the Match. This is his story.
