Product Description

Ashley Morrison (filmmaker) was looking to find as many sporting heroes who had been awarded the Victoria Cross for his radio show “Not The Footy Show” in early 2014, when he remembered that only four rugby internationals had ever received such an honour, three Irish and one English. He dug out from his bookshelves Gavin Mortimer’s book “Fields of Glory” and re-read the stories of our three heroes.

As the commemorations for the centenary of the First World War started to unfold the more it seemed important to tell these men’s story. With the Rugby World Cup being held in England in 2015 it seemed only right that these three rugby players should be celebrated in such a way.
