San Diego, CA (December 15, 2010) – There’s a new rugby movie coming out on Friday, December 17th called “Play On”that the USRF encourages you to watch. Not only is it an entertaining movie, but a percentage of the proceeds from all views of the movie emanating from the USRF will be donated back to the Rugby Foundation.
The movie was written by former Eagles Sevens captain Al Dekin and Santa Monica and KC Blues prop Dave Story, who also directed the film. The storyline traces the path of redemption for a failed Scottish rugby star, Keirs Kilgore, who leaves his country and the shadow of his amateur era rugby legend father, to seek fame and fortune as a football player in America.
After his failed attempt at football leaves him penniless and homeless, he finds redemption through an unlikely motley crew of social weekend rugby warriors who take him in. While playing at the lowest level of rugby he finds the true meaning of teamwork, loyalty and courage. This journey takes him back to his homeland where he once again has to choose between his ideals or those of his father.
The film will have a worldwide online release on December 17, 2010 and can be viewed at www.playonthemovie.com. The USRF will send out another release on Friday with the link where your viewership will benefit the Rugby Foundation.
