In an exclusive behind-the-scenes documentary, RugbyPass Originals looks back at the 2018 Guinness PRO14 Finals.
‘Game Day’ gives a unique insight into the hard work that goes into such days; from groundsmen to chefs, from referees to TMOs, and from the point of view of the coaches and players themselves.
Leinster Rugby and Scarlets met for the sixth time in a little over 12 months, and RugbyPass was there to chronicle the final chapter in the 2018/19 PRO14 season.
Leinster were aiming to create a piece of history by completing a domestic and European double, while the Scarlets focused on retaining their Championship crown and claiming back-to-back titles.
At Leinster, head coach Leo Cullen and senior coach Stuart Lancaster maximised the talent pouring out of the province’s academy and matched it well with the plethora of international talent among their established ranks.
Scintillating play is the Scarlets calling card, but it is based upon Kiwi values that ensure the opposition breakdown is raided at every opportunity and offloading ability is the main passport into the starting XV.
Both teams brought everything they have and RugbyPass was there to capture the epic drama that unfolded in front of 50,000 people.
This is ‘Game Day’.
