Fans are set to be offered new insight into rugby’s biggest annual championship with the release of a documentary chronicling the Six Nations.

Six Nations: Full Contact follows the 2023 edition of the event, with cameras inside each camp throughout the tournament.

Produced by the makers of Formula 1’s “Drive to Survive”, the documentary features both behind-the-scenes footage and on-field action and airs with just over a week to go until the start of the 2024 Six Nations.

Ireland’s pursuit of a grand slam features prominently, while there is also a focus on some of the sport’s stars, including Finn Russell and Ellis Genge.
