BBC Sport’s trail for the Women’s Six Nations features the rugby tournament's captains fiercely lip-syncing to Lorde’s dark cover of Everybody Wants to Rule the World.

Created by Whisper Films, the spot highlights the physical dedication of female rugby players through close-up shots of intensive gym sessions, intercut with shots of impressive yet painful-looking tackles on the field.

Lorde’s slowed down, minor key cover of Tears for Fears’ 80s classic provides the soundtrack, while the final third of the 60-second promo sees all six women’s team captains join in as a choir in darkness
