The School of Hard Knocks returns on RD today with episode four of this fascinating series. We catch up with the group of unemployed youngsters from East London as they are put through their paces both on and off the field as they head towards their first proper rugby match.
In this episode youll see them head on over to Saracens to train with one of the top sides in the Guinness Premiership. While its a great experience, the reality of rugby is that disaster can strike at any moment, shocking some of the other young players.
Later on they finally get into it, playing their first training match which turns out to be a great performance, bringing everyone a helluva lot closer to where they want to be.
Heading to North Wales for a bit of training and team building, reality once again hits home as theyre pushed to their limit with both the weather and the food situation.
On the pitch we then see that some of the so-called hard men arent quite as tough as they think as the mud and physicality takes its toll. Teambuilding then follows as they head into the hills for some rock and river climbing. Things end badly though.
Once again its another enjoyable episode in a great series. More episodes to follow soon.
Note: Some of you couldn't view part two for some reason. You can here now.
