A Rugby League Blockbuster

The new issue of Rugby League World Magazine is out now. Here’s a glimpse at what you’ll find inside.

As we catch our breath at the end of another blockbuster domestic season by taking a look back at the Super League Grand Final and the Million Pound Game, we also dig deep into the crisis facing Cumbrian Rugby League as all three of its professional clubs now find themselves in League 1. Is the door to Super League likely to stay forever slammed shut on the sport’s ‘forgotten’ county?

Leigh Centurions have proved the doubters wrong. It is possible for a Championship club to win promotion to Super League. Club owner Derek Beaumont and coach Neil Jukes tell us how they did it.

Former Hull KR and Hull FC star Paul Cooke talks about his new book ‘Judas?’ in which he bares his soul about ‘that’ transfer and other turning points in his life.

As Hemel Stags prepare for their hugely controversial link up with Dewsbury Rams, we look at the various differing blueprints being followed by League 1 expansion clubs in the quest for success.

Wakefield winger Judah Mazive talks about his journey from Zimbabwe and how he is aiming to make his family proud by achieving success in Rugby League, and Tottenham born ex-footballer Iliess Macani explains the sharp learning curve involved in taking up a new sport as the former London Bronco heads for Bradford next season.

Joe Vagana enjoyed a trophy-laden career with the Bulls. We catch up with the big man to find out where life has taken him since he hung up his boots.

Liam Kay tells us why he is leaving Leigh to go promotion-chasing once again with Canadian newcomers Toronto Wolfpack in League 1.

Spain are in our international spotlight as we chat with Miguel Blanco-Charters, who earned his call up via Twitter while playing amateur rugby with Seaton Rangers!

Wath Brow Hornets provide our Rising Star, plus Dream XIII (Brett Hodgson), Getting To Know (Tom Johnstone), Random League, Women’s Rugby League (Thatto Heath & Leigh Miners Rangers), Dave Hadfield’s Last Tackle, Steve Mascord’s Bondi Beat and more.
