Sports Doc Of The Week Jean de Villiers – The Road To Recovery Part 2

After a sensational part one of the three part series, the second instalment of ‘Jean de Villiers – The Road To Recovery’ is out and it’s a cracker.

It looks like it’s going to be an epic series if Part One and Two are anything to go by. We all remember the horror injury against Wales, that roar, that even in a packed stadium, left every fan in no doubt as to how serious the injury was. Shoestring Productions, the team behind the idea have this to say on Part Two:

At the end of 2014 Jean suffered a crippling knee injury against Wales. He was told that at best, he would need 10 months to recover and may very well, never play rugby again. Shoestring Productions has documented his comeback to world rugby, following him every step of the day.

This is a story of hard work, determination and dedication with the aim of inspiring anyone who knows what it takes to get up after life knocks you down.

If you haven’t seen Part One, be sure to give it a watch hereThe final instalment hits screens on September 2nd, just two weeks before the start of the Rugby World Cup.
