THE LATEST issue of Rugby World brings you the full story of the 2013 Six Nations and Wales’ triumph. As well as an in-depth review of all the matches and Stuart Barnes’s analysis of the tournament, there are big-name interviews with title-winning Wales forwards Richard Hibbard, Toby Faletau and Adam Jones, England’s Dan Cole, Brad Barritt and Chris Ashton, Tim Visser of Scotland and Irish brothers Rob and Dave Kearney. Plus, Stephen Jones picks his 36-man Lions squad.

In addition to all the Six Nations features, Springbok legend Joost van der Westhuizen opens up on how he’s dealing with his terminal illness, France flanker Fulgence Ouedraogo explains why he would trade all his rugby honours to have grown up with his family in Africa and we meet the Ayr prop who’s also a pastor.
