“Right to the very end, there was jeopardy and drama throughout last season and this documentary goes right to the very heart of English rugby.
“Off the pitch we are looking forward to telling the backstories to some of sport’s greatest characters as we go into their homes and show the human stories of rugby, from players to kitmen, club owners and the league’s rising stars.”
