WILL CARLING says it is possible that the RFU could agree to allow Amazon cameras to make a fly-on-wall documentary.
Amazon, who featured the All Blacks as part of their All or Nothing series, wanted to follow England during the World Cup.
But the RFU turned down a seven-figure offer fearing it would become a distraction for Eddie Jones’ squad who finished as runners-up.
Instead, department heads elected to run their own mini-series in house with the Rising Sons features posted to England Rugby’s Youtube channel.
And with Jones’ seal of approval after a test run in Japan, a documentary series could well be in the pipeline.
Carling, who set up a television production company which would have worked with Amazon on the documentary, believes it could be revived.
He said: “There is a possibility something can be done. This is a great group of guys.
“Fans would love to see the detail that goes on behind the scenes.
“And get to know some of the characters that play the game. I would like to see something out in the near future.”
