Rugby World magazine’s June 2021 edition

The new issue of Rugby World provides detailed insight into the British & Irish Lions’ opposition this summer, South Africa. There are interviews with three Springboks stars – Faf de Klerk, Cheslin Kolbe and Siya Kolisi – as well as analysis of the world champions’ biggest threats and how they can be stopped.

On top of the Lions focus, we speak to some of those involved in the end-of-season run-in and look at rugby goings-on in Japan, Colombia and the Pacific Islands.
