Description

The remarkable story of 20 young American footballers, convinced in 1950s Hollywood to fly off to compete against Australia, New Zealand and France, despite never having heard of the game. The American All Stars proved a shock success on a crazy, rollercoaster adventure - and now 2013 marks the USA's first Rugby League World Cup qualification.
