Rugby is about to get its red carpet moment.

The premiere of the highly-anticipated the new Netflix series, Six Nations: Full Contact, which offers viewers an in-depth portrayal of the 2023 Championship and the key players involved, will be held in central London on Monday 15th January. The series will then be released in full on the streaming platform on Wednesday 24th January. 

Rugby will have its red-carpet moment with special guests invited to a unique immersive screening experience with the intrigue and eye-catching action of last year’s Guinness Men’s Six Nations being played out on the big screen.  

Full Contact is made by Box to Box Films, the production company behind some of the most riveting documentaries of the past decade, such as AmyDrive to Survive and Senna. In recent years, sports documentaries have become something of a phenomenon, offering audiences a deeper understanding of the athletes, teams, and the narratives that unfold both on and off the field. Netflix has played a pivotal role in this trend, delivering compelling storylines that transcend the realm of sports, and in the process captivating a global audience. 

Netflix, with its commitment to diverse storytelling, has now turned its attention to rugby – namely the unforgettable 2023 Championship – which will provide an absorbing spectacle for enthusiasts and novices alike. Expect a showcase of the human side of sport, exploring personal struggles, triumphs, and the camaraderie within the six teams. 

The prospect of a documentary series centred around the thrilling 2023 Guinness Six Nations is particularly exciting. For rugby enthusiasts, Full Contact promises an unparalleled behind-the-scenes look at the intense nature of the competition, shedding light on the teams’ rigorous preparations, and the emotional highs and lows of the players.

At the same time, for those less familiar with the sport, the series will serve as an engaging entry point, demystifying the intricacies of rugby while conveying the passion that fuels this great game.
