Trivia

The phrase "up 'n' under" (a catchphrase of real-life rugby commentator Eddie Waring) is a term used in rugby. An "up 'n' under" is a high kick angled so that the catcher, while looking skyward at the descending ball, receives at the same time as the ball, one or more chasing players travelling at speed, into his abdomen. The intention is to dislodge the ball, or even persuade the catcher to not bother making the catch. See more »

Can the team win? who cares?
8 January 2000 | by CharltonBoySee all my reviews

This film will be remembered by me for the lack of laughs , and the poor acting. The story is about a group of unfit men who are to be trained to beat an unbeaten rugby team for a large bet. The script shows a lack of imagination as does the final scenes during the match. The only thing i can liken this movie to is a poor carry on film. 4 out of 10
