The Code: Life with the HSBC Waratahs - Episode 1

It's time for the first episode in another fascinating rugby documentary series, that this time takes you behind the scenes with Australia's oldest provincial rugby team, the Waratahs.

If you follow RD on Twitter and Facebook, you probably would have seen the trailer for The Code: Life with the HSBC Waratahs last week. It's a fascinating new show that gives us a look behind closed doors within the Waratahs team environment as they take on another season of Super Rugby, and aim to achieve greatness.

In episode one, which aired on Fox Sports a week ago, we got to see what goes into their rigorous preseason training as they get ready for a challenging year ahead. Two months of hard work culminate in their opening game of the season against the new Melbourne Rebels side.

The groundbreaking documentary has eight episodes in total, and looks at what goes on within a professional sports team, the characters that make up the squad, and how they go about their quest for glory on the field.

Previously inaccessible, we now will get to experience the highs and lows that victories, losses, and injuries bring as we see first hand how players are taken on a personal journey of discovery. It's all access, as the cameras continue to roll throughout the season. If the first episode is anything to go buy, this is set to be a show you won't want to miss out on.

UPDATE: The Waratahs management politely requested that the video be taken off RD, and have also had it removed from Youtube. They have assured us that they're close to securing distribution globally, so if all goes well, you will be able to see the full show at some stage.

Time: 23:58

  • Just thinking about the Pacific Islanders Fiji Tonga Samoa with all that facilities and the equipment they have I wish I millions of dollars I'd invest it on the Island Nations . Just pure passion pride in the name of rugby.

  • Awesome feat, really interesting to see what happens among a pro team in between mathes -the training, banter, trips, even the gym sessions- 'cause we only get to see these guys on the pitch and we tend to judge them as ruggers and not as regular men.

    There's three things I can't wait for:

    1) The next episode
    2) The new RD
    3) The World Cup goddamit! Only 99 days to go!!

  • it'd be better if it was the reds

  • I was about to write about how the "franchise" nature of the Waratahs made it more of a company than, say, the Stade Toulousain, which is subject to competitive relegation, but then I saw that the Stade Toulousain itself is also a company with 90 employees (accounting, marketing etc). I guess my mindset is stuck in the 90s, before the whole pro aspect of the game ...

  • Urgh, any chance of dealing with the copyright claim RD? I had delayed watching it so I could sit and have an uninterrupted session and have been thwarted!

  • Everyone.. don't worry. The Bulls have just raped the Waratahs... besides, who wants to watch a documentary on a side that has never won anything.
