THE NEW season is here – and so is the latest issue of Rugby World, which has everything you need for the 2012-13 campaign. The start-of-season issue comes with a free 36-page guide to the 2012-13 campaign, including in-depth profiles of every Aviva Premiership and RaboDirect Pro12 club, expert predictions, fixtures, new signings and a Six Nations wallchart.
In the magazine itself, which has a new look, Rugby World has exclusive interviews with big names, new signings and top coaches. Danny Cipriani talks about his move to Sale while Phil Davies explains how he hopes to turn around Cardiff Blues’ fortunes. Gordon D’Arcy opens up on Leinster’s bid to win three straight Heineken Cups while David Denton reveals the scare he experienced while on safari. Plus, we head to an Army camp with London Irish, talk to Leicester’s Geordan Murphy, explain the new laws and much more.
It’s the ultimate package for the new rugby season and two magazines for the price of one!
