The guys from BBC’s Earth Unplugged went down to Bath Rugby recently to film a training session in high definition slow motion, giving us a different perspective on the sport we all love.

Rugby Impacts in Slow Motion features clips of the Bath guys training at Farleigh House, with Sam and Simon capturing the full force of the scrum, physics of the grubber kick and perhaps the bit that came out best on camera, the impact on the ball when Gavin Henson kicked it.

There is of course a scientific element to it, and it would have been great to see some big hits and collisions slowed down, but as it was filmed at the start of the season they weren’t smashing one another, on that particular day anyway.

    Ouch, the least they could have done was move the pads closer to him. He landed on his backside!

    I'd like to see at least one tackle, even if it is a text book demonstration, and a really dynamic lineout jump. American football isn't a sport I'm too keen on, but this show was cool http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1V3uwfeYUW8

    Definitely!! "I've never felt less manly" said one guy at the end. Jesus you can say that again.

    Thanks for sharing this RD. I love slow-mo of footie but was frankly a tad disappointed by that effort from the BBC boys. Maybe it'd have been more entertaining if they'd film it all at the pub indeed!

    "at the start of the season they weren't smashing one another" Except when they went to a pub and Henson got clocked.

    It's only dangerous if you do it wrong!

    I did not know Gavin Henson could kick.
