Inspired by opinion pieces on star fullback Israel Folau coming into the 2017 season, the film focuses on his approach to drawing motivation from the press.

As media attention increases around Folau’s form, so does his determination to answer the critics – the very embodiment of ‘Want it More’.

The spot, including the short-form teaser, directed by Melvin J Montalban, was shot specifically to highlight the individual endeavour each player goes through.

Every Wallabies player will experience his own personal commentary and criticism to consider, and as human beings, it’s how we respond to this commentary that matters the most.

The campaign is supported with a suite of assets, including a full digital, social, print and POS rollout.
