The Morning Sound catch up with John Kirwan

Sir John Kirwan joined us in studio to chat about his show 'School of Hard knocks!'.

School of Hard Knocks is a NZ charity programme that uses sport and fitness to help young Kiwis improve their lives, tackling issues like unemployment and unhealthy lifestyles.

The programme became a television series last year and was so popular that a second series of the show was made.

Former All Black, John Kirwan, hosts the show which helps around 15-20 young people who have come from challenging backgrounds.

Kirwan and one of the stars of the series, Lincoln filled us in on the show and some of the challenges throughout the programme.

School of Hard Knocks season two is on Tuesday nights at 8pm on Sky Sport 1.
