5 Things to Watch on RPTV this week:
1. SANZAAR Classics
Classic Wallaby Matt Burke takes us back to a time when stadiums were full, games were close and cigarette companies’ logos still branded the field. In the final game of the 1998 Tri-Nations, the winless All Blacks travelled to Durban with names like Lomu, Mehrtens, Marshall and Brown (Olo, that is). The game was an instant classic and a timely reminder of the history and passion attached to the storied Springboks/All Blacks rivalry.
2. Rugby Chat
The latest episode of The Short Ball, acclaimed kiwi journalist Scotty Stevenson and All Blacks legend Ali Williams are back in the studio to discuss the Super Rugby final, do the Jaguares have a chance against a dominant Crusaders side and what do they think about the new All Blacks selections?
3. Saracens Women Going Pro
RugbyPass Insiders takes fans behind the scenes at teams and events from across the rugby globe. In Going Pro, we follow the mighty Saracens Women’s rugby team as they attempt to defend their Premiership title in the 18/19 season.
4. Re-Live the Best of the Rugby World Cup
Rugby World Cup fever is gathering pace. The first squads have been named and sushi and ramen stocks from Newport to Nadi are running low as players prepare for the big stage. RugbyPass TV subscribers can re-live the Unforgettable Moments and other stories from the 1995, 1999, 2003, 2007 and 2011 Rugby World Cups, including the acclaimed Weight of a Nation that documents New Zealand’s nail-biting road to the 2011 title.
5. Get Informed, Dress Better
And finally… In a new RugbyPass Originals series, RugbyPass Ventures looks at some of the businesses and side projects players work on outside the game. In Episode 1 Stuart Hogg introduces his new clothing line, Johnstons of Elgin.
