Just as the hype surrounding the All Blacks tricks at training videos has died down a little, out comes another one, from a different team, that is sure to get you scratching your head while asking the question, 'How did they do that?'
There's an obvious answer of course, but we wouldn't want to take away too much from this latest offering from Gloucester Rugby, which serves as not only a bit of fun, but a nice way to market their main club sponsor, Jewson.
Teaming up for yet another in the viral video contenders for the year, Jewson and Gloucester produced this short film to show some of the fun and unbelievable talent that is on display behind the scenes, at a laid back training session at Kingsholm.
Narrated by Mike Tindall, it also features James Simpson-Daniel, Henry Trinder, Freddie Burns, and Charlie Sharples, as they make the exceptional look easy in a few minutes of footage that it's got to be said, it pretty good to watch.
"This was a really enjoyable project and one that we were pleased to be involved in. We hope it entertains not only our supporters but rugby fans and sports fans as a whole," said Pete Grzonka, Head of Sales and Marketing at Gloucester Rugby.
So while it's not an incredibly original concept, it is good fun and although in the back of your mind you know that there's some serious video editing that has taken place, it's done well and is almost believable. Check this out.
