that documentary is fantastic.  i couldn't stop watching it.  Inspirational.  Was going to post a link on here, but delighted to see you have already got it up.

 

It is good and has emotion, inspiration, strong family values, brotherhood as well as some big hits ...and all with a voice over from Russell Crowe.  Makes you proud to be a League fan and to be English.

 

If only this could get on the BBC.

 

It does seem that the word is spreading about how good it is as the video only had 400 hits when I posted the link a few days back and already it has almost 70,000 views.

Greg Bird however is a paragon of virtue


As is Paul Gallen.

I actually hope one of the Fijians lays one on Gallen tomorrow, assuming he plays.

Could we get a link of this to George Riley? The BBC would get good viewing figures and a large pat on the back for showing it.
I know it's Fox, so Sky should have rights, but they are quite ignorant towards the WC. I hope the RL remember this when the next round of international games go up on sale.
Yes, the BBC arn't exactly running enough highlight, etc; but we have seen a change in some attitudes.
Otherwise, loved the Documentary, as a proud Brit and a South's fan.

Why cant we have this quality of features on the BBC?  This is the kind of feature that gets someone into the sporting consciousness of a nation, where this lad should be.

Top quality video. Works on so many levels. Be great to see it on the BBC. Would really open some people's eyes to rugby league players.

This is a great production by South Sydney Media. No doubt a connection or two of Russell's was pivotal.

Regardless, the story was touching, the filming was crisp and the narration was brilliant.

Just another example of how advanced the coverage of sport is in Australia.

This is the type of cheaper advertising that the RFL needs to invest in to inspire new viewers.

I hope you all took the opportunity to watch the documentary as it has now been removed due to copyright infringement.

 

Still not bad generating 120,000 views in less than 2 weeks.
