The phrase "up 'n' under" (a catchphrase of real-life rugby commentator Eddie Waring) is a term used in rugby. An "up 'n' under" is a high kick angled so that the catcher, while looking skyward at the descending ball, receives at the same time as the ball, one or more chasing players travelling at speed, into his abdomen. The intention is to dislodge the ball, or even persuade the catcher to not bother making the catch. See more »

The main reason I gave this film a 10 is because of the shower scene. I'm a massive fan of Samantha Janus and seeing her in any film instantly makes it a classic in my book. The cast were superb. I'm not a big fan of rugby but it was worth watching.....
