Trivia

The film was first shown on 17 March 1978, with filming taking place a year earlier. The dialogue in the film was heavily ad-libbed by the cast around a rough outline by the writer and director. The ending was originally planned with Wales winning. When they lost the game the ending was hastily revised, with additional dialogue pick-up shots in the stands of the Cardiff Arms Park. The filming took place in the following order: The village streets (hearse); Training Plane (Rhoose Airport); Paris exteriors; All Paris interiors (BBC Club, Newport Road, Cardiff) The original 1977 members of the Welsh and French RFC teams can be seen in this film on the filed and off, including Gareth Edwards, JPR Williams, Phil Bennett and others.

A wonderful film with a bit of rugby.
8 June 2006 | by (Newport, Wales) – See all my reviews

What goes on tour stays on tour. Well not this time anyway, the boys from a small welsh village are away to France for the Grandslam match.

A truly delightful film to watch again and again regardless of your nationality and sport you follow. Mog and the boys do what they can to make the weekend one to remember, which includes strip clubs, dust ups and getting collars felt by the local Gendarme.

"Some have been know not to make it to the match, some were known not to get back to Wales" warns Mog.

I wholly recommend this film.
