Getting paid to play your favourite sport. Sounds amazing, right?

Pocket Money's Marc Terrano sat down with GWS Giants co-captain, Phil Davis, to discuss the hidden costs of being a professional athlete. We're excited to bring you a new perspective on the world of sport.

We dig into the details of life off the pitch, to find out what it's like to have a job that's dependent on your physical health and the types of financial decisions you have to make for a career with a pretty short lifespan.

The GWS Giants play out of GIANTS Stadium in Sydney Olympic Park, for more visit giants.afl.
