While other kids of their generation were pounding away on their PlayStations or wiling away the long Canterbury summers at the beach, All Blacks brothers Owen and Ben Franks were growing up 'tough'. They had made the decision at a very early age that they were going to be professional rugby players and, encouraged by their fitness guru father, Ken, that is exactly what happened. Endless hours in the gym, unique training regimes and an unstinting dedication to the pursuit of the end game has seen Owen and Ben Franks rise to become two of the very best props in world rugby. They are both World Cup winners and the youngest brother, Owen, is at the tender age - by propping standards - of just 23 acknowledged as the finest tighthead prop in the world. In this book Owen and Ben provide the ultimate blueprint in how to succeed at the very top of world rugby. Their unique training tips will cover off everything any aspiring young rugby player will need to know to improve their game ...the question, though, at the end of the day, will be: do you have the dedication and are you TOUGH ENOUGH?Much more than just a training book, this is a true story that will truly inspire both adults and children alike.
