WALES is preparing to reveal to fans never-before-seen dressing room footage as Netflix cameras follow their every move during the Six Nations.
The subscription streaming titans will create a special behind-the-scenes documentary of the competition, tracking each of the six teams. The goal is to expand rugby appeal around the world, and Wales’ Warren Gatland has stated that the shackles will be removed as part of the effort.
“Yeah, we are going to be incredibly supportive of it,” said Gatland, who accepted the footage will come with its challenges. “You love the ability to do coaching behind closed doors. That’s what you get excited about. The hardest thing about coaching is doing this. That’s the most challenging thing – doing the press and having cameras in your face on a continuous basis. But it’s the way things have gone and we’ve got to try and be supportive, try to grow the game. If that creates new fans and new interest in the game of rugby, then I can only see that as a positive.”
