The minute-long clip shows comedian Jack Whitehall trying to ingratiate himself with former England rugby players Martin Johnson and Lawrence Dallaglio.

The description of the clip promises that Whitehall will be put through his paces by a number of England stars.

It reads: "Can they teach him the fundamentals of rugby? Will he be up to the task? Find out when term starts on September 4th."

Early in August the brand announced it had signed up current England rugby players George Ford, Joe Launchbury and Jonathan Joseph as brand ambassadors and they would feature in the Samsung School of Rugby.
