As Clive Woodward's men descended upon the Southern Hemisphere for the final leg of a long hard season, history was to be created. Victory over the New Zealand Maoris kicked off the Zurich Summer Tour of New Zealand & Australia, but two further stern tests lay ahead...

The Siege of Wellington - 14th June 2003. New Zealand 13-15 England.
Fifteen points from the boot of fly-half Jonny Wilkinson handed England their first victory over the All Blacks on New Zealand soil for 30 years. It was far from a classic, but the performance epitomised the spirit of Clive Woodward's team, as they stood firm when it mattered the most. With the rain sweeping around the ground, conditions were difficult. Reduced to 13 in the second half the All Blacks but were unable to turn over a resolute England defence and four times a six man English pack survived the onslaught of a full All Black scrum. It was England's day as they created their own slice of history.

The Massacre in Melbourne - 21st June 2003. Australia 14-25 England.
History was created as the Wallabies were defeated on their own turf and the season ended with a perfect ten.

Combining forward power with pace in the backs, England romped home to victory in Australia's own back yard for the first time in history. Touching new heights, England's aerial dominance was only one aspect of a thoroughly convincing performance. Jonny Wilkinson was having one of those days, as he carved open opportunity after opportunity with a fine array of angled and short passes, and when he timed his delayed pass to perfection for Northampton Saints man Ben Cohen, the big winger sidestepped the Wallabies fullback Chris Latham to score under the posts for England's third try.

Sailor went over for a deserved try near the end, but England were out of reach and Wilkinson capped off the day with a penalty on the final hooter.

Important Information on PAL Region 0 DVD compatibility.
PAL Region 0 is now the most popular format sold by Green Umbrella. It ignores the original Region Coding designed for DVDs. If you own a multi-region DVD player (i.e. one which will play any Region of DVD) AND a television which can receive the PAL signal then this DVD will function correctly.

To the best of our knowledge (although we accept no responsibility for the accuracy of this information, and would thoroughly recommend that if you are in any doubt you consult your electrical retailer for advice before making a purchase) this PAL Region 0 DVD is designed to function in the following PAL TV countries:

Abu Dhabi, Afghanistan, Albania, Algeria, Angola, Argentina, Ascension Island, Australia, Austria, Azores, Bahrain, Bangladesh, Belgium, Bosnia Herzegovina, Botswana, Brunei, Cameroon, Canary Islands, Cape Verde, Cayman Islands, China (Peoples Republic), Christmas Island, Cook Island, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Dubai, Easter Island, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Falkland Islands, Faroe Islands, Finland, France, Gambia, Gaza & West Bank, Germany, Ghana, Gibraltar, Greece, Greenland, Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Holland, Hong Kong, Iceland, India, Indonesia, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Jordan, Kenya, Kuwait, Lebanon, Lesotho, Liberia, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Macao, Macedonia, Madeira, Malawi, Malaysia, Maldives, Malta, Montenegro, Mozambique, Namibia, Nepal, Netherlands, New Zealand, Nigeria, Norfolk Island, Norway, Oman, Pakistan, Papua New Guinea, Paraguay, Poland, Portugal, Qatar, Sardinia, Seychelles, Sierra Leone, Singapore, Slovenia, Solomon Islands, Somalia, South Africa, Spain, Sri Lanka, Sudan, Swaziland, Sweden, Switzerland, Syria, Tanzania, Thailand, Tonga, Tristian Da Cunah, Turkey, Uganda, United Arab Emirates, UNITED KINGDOM, Vanuatu, Vatican City State, Yemen, Yugoslavia, Zambia, Zanzibar, and Zimbabwe.

NB. This DVD will NOT work in NTSC TV regions (such as United States & Canada) unless your DVD player can play Region 0 DVD's (ie it is multi-region) AND your TV can receive the PAL signal. If you are in any doubt please consult your electrical retailer before making a purchase.

However, although we offer no guarantees, some of our customers in USA and Canada have successfully played these DVD's on their PC (not TV) equipment. Again, if you are in any doubt please consult your electrical retailer before making a purchase.
