Colin Warner, Club Chairman, recommends
I would recommend the film of the 1999 World Cup Cricket match between South Africa and Australia. The result broke the hearts of cricket supporters of South Africa but it remains extraordinary, timeless theatre and until last year’s final it was regarded as the greatest one-day match ever played.
Frank Auger, Cricket chairman recommends
A must-see show has to be “The English Game” on Netflix. A 6 six-part drama, written by the writer of Downton Abbey, that charts the move of football (soccer) from being an upper-class public (private) school game to one for the working classes. Brilliant, watched it all in 2 sittings! There’s an interesting back story also. Much of story focuses on the early days of the FA Cup, which was coincidentally won 5 times by a team called Wanderers, wearing the same gold, black and red colours. Indeed when you check the history, Arthur Kinnaird, one of the main characters in the show, played for Wanderers before Old Etonians.
Hindy Jordan, Rugby Club Committee recommends:
I am currently watching Queen Sono, new African sci-fi on Netflix. I am intrigued by documentaries so I’m part of the nerdy crew who watch TV to learn something as opposed to enjoying storytelling mass media. Other than Super Rugby that unfortunately will not have a champion for this year. The last documentaries I watched were ” Explained ” on Netflix and the history of Coca Cola on YouTube. If I’m not watching Women’s Six Nations Rugby or Women’s Club rugby or following Saracens or the Harlequins, I’m nowhere near a television. Rugby is my life. I live to eat and sleep women’s rugby.
