Watch nine of England's 2003 World Cup heroes train a team of inmates for a match against the Aussies


ITV’s new documentary sends nine of England’s 2003 World Cup winners to prison, where they train a team of inmates to take on the Aussies. This article explains how to watch a Grand Slammers stream wherever you are.

The two-part series airs on Wednesday 27 September and Thursday 28 September, and will be available for free on ITV1 and ITVX in the UK. If you’re away from home but want to see how the story unfolds, you can use a VPN to watch Grand Slammers FOR FREE from abroad using ExpressVPN.

Twenty years after their historic Rugby World Cup victory in Sydney, Grand Slammers throws Martin Johnson, Ben Cohen, Lawrence Dallaglio, Matt Dawson, Will Greenwood, Jason Robinson, Mike Tindall, Phil Vickery and Jonny Wilkinson into a very different challenge.

Dispatched to HMP The Mount in Hertfordshire (one of the few adult men’s prisons in England with its own rugby pitch), the nine world champions have just two months to turn a group of prisoners into a fully functioning rugby team. Their goal? Beating a team of Australian ex-pats coached by former Wallabies skipper George Gregan.
