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 »

This film is only for the people who live north of Birmingham, and the few thousand people who support the London broncos. this is a quality film for all rugby league fans, a must have!! if you don't like rugby league then this film is not for you.
its all really northern, and a lot of the southerners will not understand what is going on and some of the language in the film.
a good film to watch after coming in from a rugby league game, weather your team has lost or won, it doesn't matter, its a heart warming story one that not many people will have heard as rugby league isn't a huge sport. should be re-released as the sport is getting bigger and bigger!!
i say it again FANTASTIC!!!
