- California Doubling: Irish version - the school is ostensibly in rural Ireland (most likely a stand-in for Clongowes), but was filmed in a Dublin school, Castleknock College.
- Fake Nationality: British actor Nicholas Galitzine as Irish schoolboy Conor.

Even more so when Wally, the first and most vocal player to back him up, gets to play in his actual position on the wing and scores the winning try in the match.
