Following a drunken encounter, two equally attached men from a cash-strapped and divided gay rugby club unwittingly sleepwalk into an adulterous affair. Mark (Alexander Lincoln) is a new and relatively inexperienced rugby player on the B team and Warren (Alexander King) is a star player on the A team. As this dangerous game begins to unravel off of the pitch, their uncovered infidelity has far-reaching consequences, creating deep divisions and fractures within the club. Team spirit, loyal-ties, camaraderie, and the support the players have for one another are tested against the darker and more competitive and emotional undertones rife in this environment.
