This is the penultimate episode of School of Hard Knocks so as the series comes nearer to a the grand finale, the guys continue their preparation as they play another training game, apply for jobs, and meet Sir Clive Woodward.
Mentored by Will Greenwood and Scott Quinnell, both Test legends, the boys have already come a long way from when they first got together as a squad. The friction that comes from their differing backgrounds still exists, but theyve made great progress.
In this episode they get to meet Dick Greenwood, who is not only Wills dad, but a former England coach and player who has plenty to say when it comes to getting the boys in shape and teaching them the basic principles of forward play.
Their meeting with 2003 World Cup winning coach Woodward is yet another highlight of their eight week journey as they pick up some valuable tips when it comes to believing in oneself.
Theres trouble at the start of their game later on though, when one of the players is again found out to have been drinking, which proves a distraction to all.
The job applications at the Olympic Park go pretty well, and by all means it looks as though the group are setting about making great changes in their lives. Next week well post the final episode, and include an update on how the guys are doing today, a few months after the show was filmed.
To those who had some trouble playing part two from last weeks show , a link has been posted there now so you can catch up on what you missed out on.
