London, Mar 18 (ANI): Gavin Henson, who started his career with only 2500 pounds as his annual wage, has revealed that he is more worried about his bank balance now than he was before owing to his parental responsibilities.
The rugby player played at Llanelli for a game, where a scout from Swansea spotted him and they signed him for a full-time contract.
But he was not concerned about his low earnings as he stayed with his parents.
"Luckily, I was still living with my parents in my village of St Brides, so my food and washing were sorted. Even so, I wasn't overly worried about my bank balance," the Telegraph quoted him as saying.
"As it happened, my luck soon turned as I progressed up through the teams at Swansea, which got me bonuses. That drove me on even more, so by the time I'd turned 18, in February 2000, I was on a tidy sum.
"I'm probably more worried about making ends meet now that I'm a father, as I've got my two kids to consider and it's every parent's concern to keep a roof over their kids' heads. Given that a sportsperson's playing career can easily be over when they hit their thirties, unlike more traditional careers, I'm always trying to think ahead about how to prolong my work," he added.
