OUR THOUGHTS, not just from the Rugby World team but from the rugby community go out to those affected by the devastating effects of the earthquake that struck Christchurch last month and the victims of the Pike River Mine disaster.

This month we focus on the revolving holders of the no. 10 shirt, especially wonder boy Toby Flood. The Calcutta Cup match takes places this month at Twickenham as part of the Six Nations championship, we look at the history behind it and why it is so important to both sides. We investigate what’s rugby’s best way forward when it comes to head injuries.
