A deathbed confession from a touch judge leads to a repeat of a test match between the All Blacks and Wales 25 years later — with the same players. Before the footy, a former Welsh star is forced to face up to a past romance. Mateships and rivalries are rekindled in this genial "what if" yarn, which celebrates and satirises two nations' rugby obsessions. Screened in Kiwi cinemas and on Welsh television, this co-production won best screenplay and supporting actor (John Bach) at 1992's NZ Film Awards. The cast saw former All Blacks and Welsh rugby reps playing alongside acting greats from both countries.
Don't you come your Welsh malarchy with me, sunshine. Your own bloody touch judge told me that Bleddyn bloody Morgan stepped fair and square into touch – and what's more, he wrote it down in a death bloody bed confession.– Winston Macatamney (Peter Gwynne)
