The two-minute video showcases the Brumbies, Waratahs, Melbourne Rebels, Queensland Reds and… WESTERN FORCE.
It features many of the young faces in Australian rugby as well as looking back on some classic moments down the years for Australian sides – all set to a James Bond’esque theme in the background.
