Ruck Stars | Preview (BBC Three)

Rivalry on and off the pitch as the rising stars of rugby chase the dream of going pro. Follow two of the biggest teams in world rugby, the Scarlets and the Ospreys, as their under-18s academies go head to head to be crowned the best team in Wales.



Over one short, sharp season in which each team plays each other once, every game counts and there is no room for error. The stakes are high. A successful season could lead to a potentially life-changing professional contract and a call up to represent your country.



Fullback Cori returns after a foot injury that could have derailed his career. After almost a year out of action, he’s determined to reclaim his place in the Ospreys team and prove he deserves to be on the path to going pro.




Dafydd looks to make his mark with the Ospreys squad. A talented centre, proud of his half-Welsh, half-Samoan heritage and his faith, he gives his all in training hoping to make the team sheet for game one against Cardiff.


Macs is feeling the pressure of being one of the players already on contract. He needs to constantly be at the top of his game as he looks to light it up when the Scarlets take on North Wales side Rygbi Gogledd Cymru.




Ruck Stars begins on BBC Three from Tuesday 18th October, or is available on iPlayer now.
