The documentary tackles the issues of race and class within the sport.

Amazon Prime Video is releasing rugby union documentary Everybody’s Game, by Bath Rugby player, Beno Obano.

The documentary includes contributions from professional rugby players Maro Itoje, Anthony Watson, Ellis Genge and Biyi Alo, and focuses on the backgrounds of BAME players within rugby union.

Everybody’s Game sees the group discuss the perceptions of race and class within the sport, as well as how rugby union should be open to everyone.

The documentary will launch Thursday 26th November on Amazon Prime Video in the UK.

Obano said: “I think rugby has traditionally been a sport played and watched by middle-class white people. But, I’ve been able to benefit in so many ways from rugby and I obviously don’t fit that description. With this documentary I want to change the perception of rugby and expose it to more people by telling the stories of non-traditional rugby players in the hope that those spectating and participating in rugby may slowly begin to grow and diversify.”
