They had been through so much together over the past months and years. They were well known throughout the land as the greatest rugby team, and every Saturday they had tested themselves against the best opposition across Britain. They had given blood, sweat and tears on the rugby pitch for each other, sticking together through thick and thin. Posing for their final photograph, the greatest team felt incredibly close; a band of brothers, bonded together through their shared passion, dedication and friendship.
Now that Britain was at war, they knew things would be different. They would have to test themselves against tougher opposition. Now, they would need each other more than ever...
