More of Jon Snow (Kit Harington) fighting against Grenn (Mark Stanley). These may be practice fights rather than actual filmed ones. Note the padded leather armor they appear to wear. In the novel, of course, the recruits wear mail and helmets, and carry shields. Shields are shown on a few occasions in the teaser and behind the scenes, but outside of Ser Hugh of the Vale carrying one in the joust, they seem to be little used as far as shots like these show.
