With the 2015 World Cup done and dusted, it’s time to look to the future and Rugby World does just that in the new issue! We have exclusive interviews with three youngsters set to be key figures for their countries on the road to RWC 2019 – England’s Henry Slade, Ireland’s Iain Henderson and Scotland’s Jonny Gray. As well as providing a detailed insight into those three stars of the future, we pick a Wales team for the World Cup in Japan in four years’ time – how many changes have we made?
On top of all that, Stephen Jones gives his verdict on the salary cap, one man explains how the World Cup inspired him to pick up a rugby ball for the first time and we’ve compiled a Christmas gift guide. Plus, there’s a sevens calendar for 2016 included with every issue in the UK and Ireland.
