Hot Wired! Don’t miss the new Rugby League World, out Friday

The times they are a changin’ – if not for Bob Dylan, then certainly for Josh Charnley and Kevin Brown.
The former has turned his back on rugby union to return to League with a move to Warrington, where he has linked up with Brown, who has announced his retirement from the international game.
In the new issue of Rugby League World magazine, on sale Friday 27th April, we hear from both men via in-depth interviews.
Meanwhile Hull players past and present Stuart Howarth and Masi Matongo speak about their careers and future plans.
Chris Thorman, who was put in interim charge of Huddersfield following the sacking of Rick Stone, might be focused on claret and gold these days.
But at one time, his sporting world was black and white, and with Magic Weekend fast approaching we learn why St James’ Park has such a special place in his heart.
Elsewhere in this issue, another halfback, Ben Roberts, talks about tackling a different position at Castleford while York’s Will Jubb provides an uplifting story of how he jumped a major hurdle to become a professional.
We also cover the eagerly-awaited start of the Women’s Super League season.
There’s plenty more besides, including international focus on developments in Hungary, our regular round ups from France, Wales and Australia, a visit down to Post Office Road in Featherstone and a look at some of the famous siblings who have played the game over the years.
