Play On- The Rugby Movie: Official Fan Page's Profile
trailer has more than 200,000 views more than 125 countries
This week we’re joined by an old friend of the podcast, former Scottish international Scott Hastings. We’ve also got former American Eagles player Shawn Lipman in LA, and social media architect Ryan Mattock in Edinburgh. Together they take us through the background to an exciting new rugby movie called Play On. Scott also takes us through a preview of the Six Nations, and we ponder which French team will turn up – the great one or the crap one. We also walk through Ode To The Haggis, Gavin Hastings’ budding career as an actor and a spectacular example of the complexities of pronouncing Fijian and Samoan names while commentating. You can find the Play On movie at http://www.playonthemovie.com. You can follow the movie on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/playonthemovie, or on Twitter at @playonmovie. Have a look at the movie trailer, which we’ve added it to our Facebook page, here: http://fbrugby.saffastuff.com. LIKE us there and keep up to date with rugby news.

Quotes

At this stage of the game you need to be consistent and keep up to your mates.
- Virtual Rugby

Rugby is not a gentle game. But when the South African team walked onto Newlands rugby ground in Cape Town to face the British and Irish Lions on Sept. 12, 1903, expectations were of an especially violent match. It was just over a year since the Boers, or Afrikaners, and the British had been at war, a brutal conflict in which Britain’s Lord Kitchener built the world’s first modern concentration camps and the Afrikaners found one of the defining moments of their history. On that September day, after two matches drawn in a three-match series, the South Africans had one thing on their minds: bloody revenge. “Those early matches were incredibly tough,” says John Nauright, professor of sport management at George Mason University in Washington, D.C., and author of several books on South African rugby. “The rugby pitch was the one place where they could fight the war all over again.” - SA Rugby: Time stands still -Tony McKeever

The problem is that people want to feather their own nest to the detriment of the game as a whole.
- John Inverdale, Scrum March 12, 2009

Forwards win the game, backs decide by how much.
- Saying

Commentary

The measure of success is not in winning or losing, it's what you do with what you've got that counts.
- Bob Dwyer, Green and Gold Rugby Podslam #51

The best flyhalf can see opportunities two or three passes away.

On Field - Contains extensive guidance, information and templates to assist clubs in areas of the business that take place on the field of play, including useful contacts, job descriptions for the team coach, manager and club captain, player recruitment tips, club season calendar and much more.

History

Rugby League: More than just a game
One hundred years ago there was social ferment in Australia. Industrial unrest, crime and political changes were widespread giving the working class a new confidence. And in an astonishing series of events and people, football was changing forever. Rugby League was born. image gallery
