As the Rugby World Cup gets started in Japan today we take a step back in time to 2015...

The last Rugby World Cup was hosted here in the UK and we were thrilled to be a part of it as the Brighton Community Stadium hosted two of the matches:

  • South Africa v Japan, 19 September 2015
  • Samoa v USA, 20 September 2015

Naturally everyone assumed that South Africa would win that first match, however in true underdog style Japan triumphed on the day and the match became known as the miracle of Brighton. It did seem like a film plot and so it is no surprise to see that the event has now been transformed into a movie. The Brighton Miracle will shortly be available on Amazon Prime and Apple TV but in the meantime here is the trailer:

Wouldn't it be great to see Japan v England in the final?!
