Netflix to make behind-the-scenes docuseries about the 2023 Six Nations

Netflix will be showing a new behind-the-scenes docuseries that follows the four home nations during the 2023 Six Nations.

According to City A.M, Six Nations chiefs have ‘held talks with programme makers and a deal is thought to be close’, paving the way to start at next year’s edition of the international tournament.

The programme is expected to be a Six Nations version of Drive to Survive, with England and Wales now giving cameras to their dressing rooms before, during and after games.

“If Netflix are going to be investing in this, they will want to get it out before the World Cup [in late 2023],” revealed Ben Uttley, who is the former director of British and Irish Lions documentaries.

“The only alternative would be to do a longer running series where they try and pick up the momentum from after the World Cup which would be a much longer commitment.

“I’m not quite sure if the audience is big enough for Netflix to invest [in that option] heavily.”

  • Overrated: Ross Moriarty
  • Underrated: Will Rowlands

One fan wrote on Rowlands: “Rowlands has been really consistent and really underrated for a couple seasons now. Tompkins is another who I don’t think is fully appreciated.”

One fan on Moriarty: “Moriarty is at best, an average 8 with a bad temper. He doesn’t do much graft and doesn’t make ground. We’ve needed to move on from him for years, just be grateful Faletau is still playing excellent rugby.”
