Rugby has a rich and beautiful history, and our historical series wants to help bring it to life, both for those who were there to see it first hand, and those who want to immerse themselves in this wonderful sport.
Born in a cauldron of romance and turbulence, the first professional season of Super Rugby was a venture into a new and delicate world, one that might never have happened had events turned out differently.
Scotland and England have provided some memorable fixtures over the years, but both teams contested the first rugby football international in 1871, shortly after the founding of the Rugby Football Union earlier in the year. Join us as we take a look at the game, and the impact it had on the growing sport.
The closing minutes of the 2004-05 Premiership season found Harlequins in a precarious position; one kick would decide and define their future. Join us as we explore the journey from that moment to its ecstatic climax.
The 1973 incarnation of the then Five Nations competition is different. Something happened that is very unlikely, indeed virtually impossible, to ever happen again. Join us as we take a look at how the tournament unfolded and it's unexpected climax.
The Six Nations continues to provide some of the most scintillating rugby we have ever seen, but back when it was still the Five Nations, Wales scored two memorable tries in a fightback that claimed victory over Scotland in 1988.
Before 1987, there was no true national league system in English rugby. The inaugural season of the Courage League National Division 1 would see the very first national English champion crowned - the prize for which Premiership clubs now fight.
Ten years after rugby had gone professional, one club had risen to the top of the domestic game, but with the introduction of playoffs to decide a winner, Gloucester would never see themselves crowned champions.
During the fledgling years of the English Premier Championship, one club stood head and shoulders above their rivals. Four championships in a row, and six wins in nine seasons saw Bath assert their dominance over English club rugby.
