Film transcript

The following is a copy of the transcript taken from the Mum’s Reward film.

Ben Youngs - BY

Nick Youngs - NY

NY:  Watching the games as parents, I think all parents get worried.

BY: For myself and my Dad, we both have that understanding because he has played rugby and he has played it at a good level, and he understands what we are going through. For my mum, sometimes it can be all too much for her.

NY: Things can be a roller-coaster, and you’ll have to ride it. But I think mothers tend to take it things slightly more to heart when things don’t go very well.

BY: My Dad, he has to sit there and explain what’s going on and it’s alright and don’t worry about it.

BY: (to Nick): Remember, whenever I scored a try, mum used to get me a Belgium chocolate seashell every try we scored.

I once scored 13 tries, so that was a good day at the office, for me.
