There is more to a rugby game than meets the eye. What happens on the day of the most important game of the season? Out there in the field hopes have to endure a hardhearted fight. However, there can be only one winner. Tears are the loser’s only price. From the guts of what is left of the working class, a muscular elegy to comradeship and commitment that goes down like a Robert Aldrich classic.
