Will Greenwood and the Grassless Tour of Rome

Will Greenwood and the Grassless Tour of Rome

Comments

World Cup winner Will Greenwood has teamed up with Canterbury again to produce another great video, this time documenting his recent tour to Rome with local side, Olney RFC Vets. It captures the essence of rugby, and the passion of the man.

Probably one of the most enjoyable pundits around these days, Greenwood has shown in recent years that his passion and love for the great game has never wained. As seen on School of Hard Knocks 2012 not too long ago, his infatuation with the sport is infectious.

Two years ago we featured A Day in the Life of Will Greenwood, which proved hugely popular and reminded us what a truly special sport rugby is, both on and off the field. If you haven’t seen it yet, make sure you do as it’s incredibly uplifting.

Will spent time in Italy as a youngster when his dad, Dick Greenwood, played for Rugby Roma. He returned there on tour with Olney RFC for a few days of drinking, bonding, and of course, rugby.

“Two Games. Four days. Carnage.. Rome. What rugby is all about,” he said.

Watch as the group of Vets get up to all sorts, including fancy dress, fines, swimming goggles, muddy bums, and Will’s homage to rugby, which as he says, is the greatest game on the planet.

    Most injuries are temporarily cured by too much booze... its the next day that sucks when you realise the injury is still bad and still there and you have a raging hangover to contend with...lol

    Lol, very amusing... I have played on a few pitches very similar to that muddy one.. One of them had slivers of stone, effectively shale based soil... we were muddy and cut to pieces... the other was so muddy that studs were useless, the ball was like a bar of soap, it was passed to retreating opposition player numerous times (by both teams) as the shirts and even the players were unrecognisable due to the mud... All good fun though.. Do many ex professionals continue to play after they retire from their professional duties? I often wonder whether Greenwood plays 100% or whether he hovers around 70% mark, only you get the impression that if most ex professionals turned it up to 100% then the opposition would get cut to pieces...

    It's posted by Canterbury themselves. You'll need to look into setting up a proxy unfortunately.
