fly on the wall documentary

6 parts over 3 hours fly on the wall documentary about Wigan RL and Orrell RU from back in the glory days. It is compelling viewing, really good.

Brilliant. I get these videos sent to me by email as I receive updates from Wigan Rugby League Old Matches 😊🏉🍒⚪️❤️🌈
Anyone can support a team when it is winning, that takes no courage.
But to stand behind a team, to defend a team when it is down and really needs you,
that takes a lot of courage.

Thanks for this. It's my viewing for the week.

I remember it well - it made us look very professional in contrast to the union boys. Sammy Southern's (?) team talk became a long-standing joke in our house: "You know what you've got to do, now go out there and do it."

I wasn't alive when this happened, so a really great insight into what RL was like back in the day. I am also a History student so right up my street, thanks for posting!
