Finn Russell cracks fans up with training effort in new Six Nations documentary

On Wednesday morning, the eagerly awaited Six Nations documentary made its debut on Netflix, bringing joy to fans across the Northern Hemisphere. Set against the backdrop of the 2023 Six Nations, the series closely follows the teams as they gear up for their pivotal competition leading to the World Cup.

The primary aim of the series is to expand the reach of the sport to a broader audience by spotlighting the intensity and camaraderie inherent in rugby. By zooming in on individual players and personalities within the sport, the documentary seeks to provide a nuanced understanding of their motivations for success.

Building on the success of Netflix’s ‘Drive to Survive,’ a series that delves into the drama of Formula One, many are optimistic that ‘Six Nations: Full Contact’ will have a similar impact on increasing participation and generating interest.

Consisting of 8 episodes, the series has received mixed reviews thus far. Some argue that it may not cater to those already deeply involved in the sport, viewing it more as an advertisement for those yet to be introduced to rugby. However, an opposing perspective suggests that it offers a brilliant glimpse into the seldom-seen behind-the-scenes life of the players, providing a unique and valuable perspective.

As avid fans of rugby ourselves, we definitely did β€˜notβ€˜ sit down for 8 hours to view the documentary on the basis of β€˜workβ€˜. But if maybe we did, then we would have found ourselves chuckling away at the various comments from players such as Finn Russell jokingly comparing himself to Lionel Messi, and Gael Fickou calling his teammate a d******* whilst not realising his audio was on.

But veering back to Russell, one of our favourite moments had to be Finn’s training technique, where he dawdled in true Finn fashion over the hurdles. Admitting that he wasn’t the ‘best trainer’, Russell gave fans exactly what they expected from everyone’s favourite little magician.
