We've got something slightly different for you today as we bring you the first two episodes of season two of The School of Hard Knocks, featuring Will Greenwood and Scott Quinnell.
The show takes mislead or disadvantaged youths and introduces them to rugby in an effort to give their lives more meaning, teach them some valuable lessons, and most of all, put a smile on their faces.
Through the experience of former Lions players Greenwood and Quinnell, as well as their coach Chris, these young lads will be put through the paces as they train hard in preparation for a match against a strong local side.
Disciplinary issues, injuries, and smoking before and after practice, can these boys get out of the doom and gloom of everyday life and find enjoyment and success on the rugby field? Well follow the series and see exactly how theyre transformed over time.
Feedback: Hopefully you enjoy this fascinating series, and while we're yet to see the outcome of what takes place, we're wondering if you have a similar story to tell. Has rugby helped you or someone you know overcome hardship in the same way as we see here?
