As a huge rugby league fan, Hills put his passion into practice and became a driving force behind the establishment of the first PDLR team in the UK.
The documentary will follow Hills as he and his Warrington Wolves team-mates prepare for the biggest game of their lives.
As the team travel to the other side of the world to face the South Sydney Rabbitohs in their first ever International Club Challenge, they must rise to the monumental challenge of becoming the best PDLR team in the world.
The documentary will follow Hills’ journey from celebrity advocate and rugby fanatic to friend and team-mate to an incredible group of men.
Take His Legs will also discuss issues such as mental health, PTSD and the true impact of sport and teamwork on the emotional well-being of the team.
Hills commented: “Playing Physical Disability Rugby League has been one of the greatest adventures of my life. I’m so glad we brought a camera with us, because it took me to places I never expected. Like Wakefield. More than that though, it has shown me the power that sport has to change lives.”
