It’s here! Your perfect accompaniment to the 2015 Rugby World Cup has arrived. The September issue of Rugby World is the ultimate guide to the tournament.
We analyse every team, looking at their RWC record, their strengths and weaknesses and picking out their key player. Plus, former England fly-half Stuart Barnes gives his predictions on how each of the 20 nations will fare.
There is also a definitive guide to all 13 match venues – how to get there, where to eat, what to do and much more. Stephen Jones has been to all seven World Cups to date and shares his memories of the tournament while we feature iconic photos from RWC history too.
On top of all that, we have exclusive interviews with rugby stars including Dan Carter, Victor Matfield and Chris Robshaw, and all our regular features.
Ten things to look out for during RWC 2015, a Q&A with Australia’s Scott Higginbotham, four top events coming up, why Bay of Plenty have made a significant contribution to this World Cup, Hotshots and more
