Watch: An in depth look at what it takes to play schools rugby in New Zealand

Interesting documentary on Rongotai College, who’s former pupils include such names as Ma’a Nonu, Julian Savea and Ardie Savea. Episode one shows the level of commitment needed to make the schools first XV and an insight into how rugby is coached at grass roots level in New Zealand.

The college itself defies the odds by competing against schools with much larger student populations, giving the documentary a true underdog vibe.
