Fekitoa’s anger

It’s a big thing for Malakai Fekitoa to publicly admit he has problems with anger. Good on him.

NZ Herald: All Black Malakai Fekitoa admits anger issues

The 23-year-old shared a message with his 173,000 followers earlier today, admitting he has struggled with anger “on and off the field”.

Fekitoa provided no particular reason for the post but encouraged those who suffered from similar problems to seek help.

“I’ve got a huge problem with anger”.

“I don’t handle some situation very well on and off the field. I get really angry sometimes and flip out so I would like to apologise publicly to any of you if I ever said something really hurtful to you at home, on the field and through social media.

“I’m ashamed and regretful, Lesson learnt. I suggest that no matter how old you are or who you are. Whatever it is. You need to speak to someone about it. Your feelings and what’s inside you. Its never bad until it will cost you. #CallOutForHelp.”
