Product Description

This DVD celebrates a remarkable achievement, as Warren Gatland's young side wins a third Grand Slam for Wales in eight years, emulating the success of the legendary Welsh teams of the 1970s.

It charts the dramatic unfolding story of 2012's Six Nations tournament, using a powerful and gripping mix of match action footage, and exclusive never before seen film shot from inside the camp, starting with the ice chamber in Poland and culminating in the amazing scenes in the dressing room after Sam ‘Captain Courageous' Warburton and the boys beat France.

Featuring exclusive interviews with Warren Gatland, Warburton himself , big George North, the boy wonder, ice cool Leigh Halfpenny, Adam 'The Bear' Jones, one of only six players to win three slams and Alex Cuthbert on THAT try against France.

This three-hour celebration programme also features exclusive interviews conducted by the players themselves throughout the tournament.  Plus a moving tribute from JPR Williams to his great friend and Wales legend Mervyn Davies who sadly passed away just two days before the slam decider.

Our journey starts in Dublin, the venue for a close 21-23 win over the Irish, and ends at a jubilant Millennium Stadium as Wales beat France in a tense encounter to lift the Six Nations trophy and complete the Grand Slam in front of their joyous home fans.

A two-disc celebration of a fantastic season--with over three hours of footage, this official product also includes: extensive highlights of the action from all five games including most of the pulsating decider against France at the Millennium Stadium.

I thought it only fair to give an accurate review of this DVD as two of the reviews were put on before it was even released. How can these be fair, people looking to buy it are swayed by speculation and assumptions. Rant over!
This DVD fully captures the emotion of a Six Nations campaign that left everybody thoroughly satisfied. It covers the build up to the tournament and speaks to the key players and staff as they follow on from the World Cup to the training camps in Poland.
The match coverage is good as all the footage comes from the BBC and there are plenty of replays and slow motion recaps. There is ample of opinion and post match reaction from the players after each match to keep people happy.
Some people are critical of the fact it doesn't have the entire matches. I don't think this is a problem. The Scotland match was 3-3 at half time and not a lot happened in the first half to report on. All the relevant bits are here.
Some of the pre-match patriotism is lost and the atmosphere in the ground has been slightly muted but for anyone that watched the matches live, this will more than rekindle those emotions on the day. This is why it only gets 4/5 but you can be sure I am actually reviewing something I have watched. Yes, it could be more comprehensive but it certainly bought back happy memories.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cracking Record of a Great Championship 20 April 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Having sat all through the Boys 2012 6 nations campaign, some of which was sat on the edge of the sofa counting down the dying minutes of some of the games I have to say that this DVD set captures the highs and the lows of this Grand Slam.

OK, so we don't get the full matches, but having seen them all when they happened there is more than enough to be able to relive the memories of each game. Also good to see that they dark moments are not air brushed out. Bradley Davis tip tackle on Donnacha Ryan in the Ireland game, Priestland's yellow and Halfpenny's (which I saw as I was there, and straight away knew that he was heading for the bin for that!) are all in there, as well as the tension of Strettle's non-try at Twickenham (one I thought might just have been given to be honest from what I saw!)

You get the joys of watching Welsh rugby at it's best working that ball slowly all the way down field, the obvious euphoria at the (so far) unique Triple Crown win when playing away at 'HQ' and the tension of that battling match against France...

The highlights as well as intelligent comments from Warren Gattlan, George North, Leigh Halfpenny and Sam 'The Captain' Warburton before and after each match.

I would say a must have for any Welsh fan who wishes to remember the 2012 campaign, and certainly a good watch for any rugby fan. A worth addition to any collection!

5.0 out of 5 stars MAGIC ALL THE WAY 19 Oct 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
A fantastic souvenir of a down to earth bunch of young men who returned heartbroken from the 2011 rugby world cup with their humble captain Sam Warburton.
The grand slam was a tribute to their work ethic and this dvd shows it all, from the last minute win in Dublin, to their grand slam triumph against the French in cardiff.
A great momento and tribute to these boys in red who brought pride and decency back into the welsh shirt.
Picture quality and sound are excellent.
