No Helmets Required

by Gavin Willacy | 01 June 2018
Category: Rugby
In 1950s Los Angeles, entrepreneur Mike Dimitro convinced a group of young American athletes to fly around the world playing rugby league, a game that was entirely new to them. Miraculously, the American All Stars competed with the best Australia, New Zealand, and France had to offer, and shocked the locals with some stunning victories. This story tells not only of the media circus and celebrity adventures, but also the All Stars' fights and flings, tragic illnesses, and farcical court cases. Dimitro's mission to establish a rugby league in the United States failed in spectacular fashion-though one All Star went on to win the Super Bowl, one became a Hollywood stuntman, and another an Olympic champion.
