Rugby League World Goes to Hollywood! Well, not quite, but the new issue – out now – does feature arguably the world’s most famous Rugby League fan and Oscar winning superstar Russell Crowe on the cover. Inside the mag, the owner of the newly crowned World Club Series champions South Sydney Rabbitohs has plenty of positive things to say about the future of the game.
Also inside this month, in addition to our comprehensive coverage of the World Club Series, we’ve got a club-by-club preview of the new Kingstone Press League 1 season, Jamie Jones-Buchanan goes Stateside to discover Rugby League reborn in the USA, Leigh Centurions star Ryan Brierley has his own column in which he writes about that spectacular season opener at LSV against Bradford Bulls, former Leeds Rhinos great Keith Senior talks to us about his return to Sheffield Eagles and we look at the impact of Sky’s coverage of the game over the past 25 years.
Plus, Nigel Wiskar on a French revolution for Rugby League in Surrey, Kevin Penny on the rejuvenation of his career, Getting to Know Roy Asotasi, Castleford Tigers halfback Ben Roberts picks his Ultimate XIII and Dave Hadfield on Rugby League Rocks.
All that and our regular dispatches from France, Wales, Australia and New Zealand, plus Joanna Lester starts a brand new column direct from Papua New Guinea in another packed issue.
