The latest in a not very long line of rugby movies on the market, “Play On,” is now available through the iTunes store. The movie, about the son of a Scottish rugby star who comes to make his mark in America playing for the Kansas City Chiefs (don’t ask me how because I haven’t seen the movie yet, but have heard good things about it) and ends up playing rugby for (what else) a Kansas City rugby team. In order for the team to get more publicity, he recommends that they end up taking a rugby tour of, you guessed it, Scotland. Much hilarity then ensues… kidding, kidding. It’s the usual “team comes together under adversity” story, where the main character’s former teammates shun him, give him grief, etc.
Despite my mini pseudo-review above, it does actually look like a really good story, and I’m looking forward to getting a copy of it in the near future to watch.
