Shaun Edwards leaves room silent in new Six Nations documentary with French to English transition

BY Jack Tunney  ·  Thursday Jan 25, 2024

The Six Nations documentary finally dropped on Netflix on Wednesday morning, much to the delight of fans all around the northern hemisphere. The series takes place during the 2023 Six Nations, following the teams as they build into their final big competition before the World Cup.

The idea of the series is to promote the sport on a larger level to reach wider audiences, focusing on the intensity and comradery that rugby brings. The show focuses in on individual players and characters in the sport to give a detailed understanding of those involved and what drives them to succeed.

Following the success of the Netflix series ‘Drive to Survive’ which focuses on the drama of Formula One, many are hoping that Six Nations: Full Contact will have the same impact on participation and interest.

The series, which lasts for 8 episodes, has had mixed reviews so far with many saying that the documentary is not suited to those with an already heavy interest in the sport, but more so as an advertising piece for those not yet initiated.

Whilst this is an interesting point of view, many others suggest that it gives a brilliant insight into the behind-the-scenes life that would very rarely have been seen before.

As avid fans of rugby ourselves, we definitely did ‘not‘ sit down for 8 hours to view the documentary on the basis of ‘work‘. But if maybe we did, then we would have found ourselves chuckling away at French defence coach Shaun Edwards’s rather blunt approach to the team’s strategy.

Edwards, whilst speaking rather impressively in his adopted tongue, has not always been fluent. In fact, he admitted he still struggles to understand what the French players were saying sometimes, before joking that it’s also hard to understand people speaking English sometimes.
