Around the Traps: Rugby lunches taking prisoners all over Sydney

Not sure if there will be a letter from King Charles III but the Shute Shield turns 100 years old this season and to mark that occasion the Sydney Rugby Rugby have produced an excellent promotional video.

Narrated by former Wallaby and Eastwood legend Brett Papworth, the mini documentary traces the history of the greatest club competition in the world from its beginning on the back of a tragedy in 1923 to the present day.

It looks at all the great eras and the casting call is extensive to say the least.

Around The Traps watched the longer version and the people interviewed included Wallaby coach Eddie Jones, Stirling Mortlock, Mick Martin, Nick Farr-Jones, Jed Holloway, Scott Fava and Simon Poidevin.
