Watch it even if you don't like rugby

This doc exposes the inequalities and injustices built into international rugby (as well as corruption in Pacific Island rugby at a national level). You don't need to care about rugby to be interested in this story.

Powerful and hard hitting

Like many of the players from the region this documentary is hard hitting and will hopefully have a big impact.

It clearly shows the inequality and obvious imbalance in power that exists in the rugby hierarchy which is not open to change.

Shows that rugby is ran at the top by people who do not encompass the values that rugby prides itself on

Hard hitting and shocking facts

It's a shame this documentary has to exist, but it does a great job of exposing the corruption in world rugby and highlighting the struggles faced by Pacific Islanders. A very well-made documentary, let's hope it makes a difference to how Tier 2 teams are treated
