The new edition of Rugby World magazine takes you towards 2012 with a fabulous free calendar which celebrates one of the greatest parts of our great game – the try! The calendar comes free with every issue of the world’s best-selling rugby magazine. A gift from us to you.
In the magazine itself we wrestle with some of the big issues in the game including where England go next and why are New Zealand so good at rugby. Wales had a sensational World Cup and we meet one of the brightest stars, George North while travelling to Ireland to meet one of their biggest stars, Donncha O’Callaghan and find out he ‘won’t go quietly’. We also travel to James Haskell to meet the England back-rower in his new home and give you all you need for the perfect rugby Christmas. We hope you enjoy it!
