An amazing and insightful documentary of how Black players were treated by the welsh RFU back then

RL gained some wonderful and talented players from Wales over the years due to the Welsh RU's racist opinions and their decision to stay amateur (COUGH) and to not pay their players legitimately :wink:

I'd recommend this programme to all RL fans

superb show, we should get the presenter to present the CC.
it showed our game in a great light especially our attitude to black player, 1986 before a black player player for wales. that could have been a show on its own.

the RFU and WRU were shown up for what fascists there were and still are. everybody should see this show and we would win tonnes of new fans, but suspect the RFU would have it banned.
