LEAGUE OF THEIR OWN (DVD)

The Exclusive, Groundbreaking Documentary Great Britain at the 2005 Gillette Tri-Nations

For the first time ever, the RFL has allowed cameras to capture the pain, pressure and passion as the British national team - The GB Lions - compete for glory in the world's leading international series. League of their Own offers a remarkable insight into the minds of the men who lay their bodies on the line for the national success. They are the game's big stars: men like Keith Senior, Adrian Morley, Stuart Fielden and Brian Carney. Filmed over a six week period during the Gillette Tri-Nations against New Zealand and Australia, from the blood stained medical room to the emotionally charged dressing rooms and the thunderous intensity of a test match. League of Their Own captures it all. 

With extraordinary access and brutal honesty, this is a truly up close and personal account of arguably the world's most demanding sport. Are you tough enough to watch?

LEAGUE OF THEIR OWN II - WARRIORS DOWN UNDER (DVD)

The Hard - Hitting Behind the Scenes Documentary Follow Up to the Acclaimed 'League of Their Own'

It was brutal and sometimes bloody - it was exhilarating, emotional and often controversial, it was the Great Britain Rugby League Lions Down Under and this is the real behind-the-scenes story of one of the most remarkable sports tours on record.
Warriors Down Under is the hard-hitting follow up to the acclaimed 'League of Their Own', but this time it really is access all areas, providing the most intense and powerful insight into the make up of these extraordinary men.
Coached again by Wigan Warriors' Brian Noble and led by Leeds Rhino's Jamie Peacock, the Lions faced four tests in as many weeks against the two best sides in the world, Australia and New Zealand. The 2006 Gillette Tri-Nations series proved to be the ultimate examination of their courage and character.

GILLETTE FUSION TEST SERIES 2007 (DVD) - Great Britain 3 - New Zealand 0

A New coach, a new belief.... Tony Smith's first series in charge and Great Britain responded with a thumping three nil whitewash of New Zealand.
As England - many of the squad of players will go into next year's World Cup Down Under with genuine hopes of glory after their first series success in 14 years!
Led again by the immense Jamie Peacock and energised by pocket rocket Rob Burrow Great Britain forged ahead with a narrow victory in the opening Test at Huddersfield's Galpharm Stadium. A week later in Hull, inspired by the genius of Leon Pryce, Peacock's Pride of Lions demolished the Kiwis - scoring an unanswered 44 points in one of the best performances ever seen on home soil!
With the series won Smith made changes for the final Test at Wigan's JJB Stadium but after a slow start his charges stormed back, scoring five tries to win 28-22.
Enjoy extended highlights of all three fantastic victories, as our boys put the Great back into Great Britain!
