Channel U SCRUM! New TV DRAMA 冲锋 (Zhong Feng)

From the producers of Jump! comes yet another inspirational idol drama Scrum!
which takes viewers into the world of rugby set in a polytechnic.

Show begins on 26 Feb 2014(Wed) and airs from Wed to Fri at 8pm - 9pm.
Last episode on 26 March 2014

Five years ago, Greenwood Polytechnic’s Black Rhino rugby team was the undisputed champions in the rugby arena. The situation changed when senior players graduated and the standard of the current team steadily declined.

Although the rugby players are passionate about their game, no matter how hard they try, they experience failure year after year at competitions. As a result, some players have given up and traded their dreams for greener pastures while others have lost faith and drive in life altogether. Their only hope is for an experienced coach to lead them on a path to victory.

Alexis Wong is a champion rugby coach in the B Division boys’ team. She hails from the elite class, with an ivy-league education and an in-born arrogance. When a twist of fate lands Alexis in Greenwood Polytechnic as an interim rugby coach, she takes on the job grudgingly to bid time, with no intention of lifting a finger to train the players. In her view, the poly boys are amateur players, with no will or skills to compete. However, after a few eventful encounters, the Black Rhino boys’ sincerity and hunger for success start to change Alexis’s attitude.
