Well I had this DVD for Christmas and watching it on Boxing Day and considering my family isn't the biggest bunch of Rugby fans they sure found it entertaining, funny and comical. The only problem I found with the DVD is when it starts before you know it your really into it and then it ends .. kinda like an Eastenders episode when you hear the drums at the end of a dramtic scene!

All in all this is a good purchase filled with footage of all the legends such as Jonah Lomu, Gareth Edward, David Campese and many many more. It also includes footage of the Lions Tour of South Africa and shows footage of some games and some horrors they didn't want you to see.

I'm not going to rant on about every tackle, maul or scrum mishap as it would be pointless buying the DVD if I told you about them all but there's some really funny clips in there kinda similar to something you'd find on "You Been Framed" that sort of thing where you see the howlers the pro's make and even the commentary which can be funny at times.

The Special Features on the disc are cracking and after watching the 57 minutes or so of the DVD you can flick through the pictures on the Gallery or even check out the profiles of some of the starts featured on the DVD.

There are 4 main funny parts of the DVD which I'm sure rugby fan or no rugby fan would find hilariously funny but overall its a good DVD to watch and apparently it wasn't that expensive which was another added bonus.

Also if you dont know who Austin Healey is he was a profession rugby player playing Internationally for England and went on to gain 51 England caps and 2 Lions caps. You'll probably notice him more on the Advanced Hair Studio advert claiming his hair is the best it has even been. That's the guy and that's the comical approach he brings to this DVD

My rating

4* - would give it 5* but downside is it didn't last very long :(
