The video starts with Jacob McDonald standing beside the pitch at Lyttelton Rugby Club on New Zealand’s South Island.
He later moves into his car on an empty park beside the pitch – and begins to talk about his rugby experience.
It’s not long before things get emotional…
Watch this powerful video below
McDonald talks, in detail, about all aspects of the match he had just played in. He goes on to explain how he touched the ball five times and, in minute detail, he pores over how the match went for him.
The passion and love for the game that this man has is clear for all to see and it shows the power that rugby has to move people even after years away from the sport.
As the video comes to an end, we see the Youtuber showing his shorts and socks that he had 17 years ago when he first played for Lyttelton.

We watch as he breaks down in front of the camera before saying, ‘I had a very very surreal moment the other day when I was washing these socks – they came out of the wash and I put them on the line’.
McDonald then pauses as he looks at the socks before saying, ‘I took the socks off the line and I tucked them up like this – and to see the blue and gold socks – that seems like yesterday…’
Visibly emotional the Youtuber caps off the video by saying, ‘Don’t waste any time – if you want to do something – do it NOW or you’ll regret it for the rest of your life.’
The video has been getting a lot of attention online from the rugby community. We’ll keep you updated on any reaction to this powerful post.
