According to an article in the telegraph there's also comments from DC, MB, & Joe Marler about the saracens affair in the documentary...

Watching it now - very interesting - follows the boys from the early part of the season. Well worth a watch.

That was really enjoyable and has got me a bit too fired up for Saturday, for a Wednesday night! Still a few more sleeps to go!

I really like how well all the boys and Gussy come across; driven and passionate but able to have a joke and enjoy what they are doing. Being in the changing room was awesome! Made me wish I still had a full compliment of working knees!!!!

I fully recommend for anyone to watch it, it is a really interesting look into our special club.

I watched this last night. I was interested, as a Harlequins fan, and enjoyed listening to what the lads had to say.

However, the quality of the production is awful. The sound is all over the place, with the reporters voice twice the volume of anything else and at one point I couldn’t hear Mike Brown talking over their footsteps! There is also no direction/purpose to the show. There are a few little chats which are interesting enough for a Quins fan but with no real purpose. Then the show seems to get distracted by the salary cap scandal and touches on that without ever really getting into it.

On the whole an interesting watch for a Quins fan looking for a quick fix, but really quite terrible from the journalists point of view.

Fish Quin - I agree. It seems very amateur but is interesting for Quins fans. Not quite up to the production levels of the Amazon Man City series.

Yeah the inclusion of that bit where her footsteps drown out MB's voice was weird, but this is essentially a 'straight to iPlayer' bit of bonus material for fans so I'm not complaining that the BBC have not invested more than the time of a couple of interns...

I think they were aiming to paint a picture of the build up to a triumphant Big Game win, but  when that fell flat they switched to the salary cap as the 'drama'

And if nothing else Marler is always entertaining....he needs to be hosting something like Rugby Tonight when he retires!

As a video editor, I wish they had got me involved. Was absolutely clear to me that the "videographer" had the Amazon NFL "All or Nothing" series in mind (I'd encourage anyone to watch it, it's genuinely made NFL my second sport) - but it falls far short of those. Could have been so much better - such a shame.

Maybe not. The question it left me with was as simple as this though:

If that was a documentary behind the scenes at a Premier League football club (even Brighton & Hove Albion for instance) there's no way they would have signed that off. Very basic video production and post production skills we're talking about here.
