England rugby players were put through their paces in Cornwall as they had to endure a military survival experience ahead of squad selection.
All 31 players travelled to a small piece of woodland at RAF St Mawgan, none of them knowing where they were going or why.
Instructors then tested the players’ resilience and teamwork at a secret training camp which involved survival skills, surfing and high ropes.
Without any way of contacting the outside world, the players had to focus on surviving – with only their teammates there to support them.
They had to work out how to build a shelter, start a fire and make a bed from whatever nature provided.
Eddie Jones and his coaching staff watched on to see how the players reacted and worked together and who naturally took the lead.
The following day each player was tested further by clinging to high ropes and poles, with no time to take in the view over Newquay.
The final tests were in the water with a surfing lesson and other water-based activities.
At the end of the day the team were finally allowed to relax, enjoying a social gathering on Lusty Glaze beach, before the journey back to London.
