  • Short Summary

    Rugby match - Harlequins team in training. Some slow motion footage.

  • Description

    Intertitle reads: "Of all the games that we love best, There's none like gentle Rugger." (Legend)"

    L/S of a scrum taking place on a rugby field. Hardly anyone in stands so presumably is training or practice. Closer shots of men jumping for the ball. Rough and tumble as the game progresses. We see a "line-out" in slow motion thanks to the "Rapid Eye Camera." Another slow motion shot - this time in L/S as a player is brought down with a tackle.

    More slow motion and real speed footage of the Harlequin team's practice. The Scottish team is not named.

    Was an item in Pathe Pictorial issue number 266.
