The Will to Win:
Paul Sculthorpe and Jimmy Gittins will take the audience on an incredible journey through their challenges and successes. You will learn about what it takes to win when everything is stacked against you and your chances of success are virtually zero. You will be entertained, you will be inspired, all you need to do is sit back and enjoy the ride.
Arguably the greatest rugby league player of the Superleague era, Paul was the captain of St Helens during a period when they won every trophy a Rugby League club could win. he was the GB captain and only player in rugby league history to win back to back 'Man of Steel' awards. Paul was also known as the 'David Beckham of rugby league' due to his ability to transcend the sport and his charismatic personality.
Jimmy was a professional rugby league player for 10 years and has built two successful and award winning businesses. He suffered a horrendous injury while playing rugby and his desire and drive to achieve what nobody but himself believed that he could is inspiring and shows that winning can be about more than just points on a scoreboard. Jimmy's incredible story is being shown on Sky Sports as part of the "Supermen of Superleague" series. Jimmy's programme will be aired initially on the 20th March.
