Pacific Warriors
  • Description

    The tiny Pacific Island nations of Tonga, Fiji and Samoa reconnect with their warrior heritage and take on the giants of the rugby World Cup in this remarkable documentary feature uncovering the story of the greatest underdogs in professional sport.

    For the Pacific Islands the game of rugby has become the modern expression of their traditional warrior spirit. Their lightning fast, brutally physical, high risk style of rugby is legendary, making them every true fan’s favourite team wherever they play. But the reality behind the all-action sporting entertainment they provide is set against the unbelievable odds they go up against every time they play.

    Tonga arrives at the World Cup in France, the team’s small talent pool having been culled from a total population that would barely fill one stadium, and given their limited resources, this fun loving band of brothers must train in public parks. But, during the tournament, Tonga pushes the boundaries of rugby to the limit on and off the pitch, nearly resulting in the greatest ever upset in professional sport and potentially changing the game forever.

    Although a Pacific Island team may not have won the World Cup just yet, in one important aspect the Islanders are victorious. Ask Jonny Wilkinson, Sir Clive Woodward or Serge Betsen where the greatest supply of raw talent comes from and the answer is unanimous - the tiny populations of the Pacific Islanders.

    Relatable to rugby fans and newcomers alike, and with contributions from the greats of rugby, Pacific Warriors is a unique, humorous and personal insight into two very contrasting worlds, all united in their passion for one sport.

    Featuring: Jonny Wilkinson, Sir Clive Woodward, Jason Robinson, David Haye, Sir Ranulph Fiennes, Bakkies Botha, Serge Betsen, Matt Giteau, Epi Taione, Nili Latu, Hale T-Pole, Pat Lam, Freddie Tuilagi, Nicky Little
