Work hard. Play harder. Never give up.
A knock-about rugby team - made up of salt-of-the-earth dairy farmers - is staring down the barrel of a long run of bitter losses. With pluck and determination, the men unite to inspire their small community. In the face of the hefty demands of farming and fatherhood, the Saturday game becomes the focus of the men's passions; the ground on which their worth is proved.
Alternatively heartwarming and heartbreaking, melancholy and hilariously funny, THE GROUND WE WON captures a fascinating season of traditions, debauchery and friendship, as the men reclaim their faith in themselves.
