The domestic season might be over, but the season is still alive and kicking.
England embraces itself for the arrival of the Kiwis and one of the biggest international test series in recent history, and we can’t wait for our readers to delve into the stories we have gathered in the build-up.
There are countless reasons to buy the paper this week, but we reckon these seven reasons will do enough to persuade you.
1, After all the talking and eager anticipation, it is almost here. The test series between England and New Zealand promises to be fierce, passionate and exciting, and we have it covered all the way. Tom Burgess, Josh Hodgson and Jermaine McGillvary are just three of the stars we have talked to, with their views plus much, much more.
2, It was announced last week that League 13, the Super League players association, has closed down. The former chief executive, Ernie Benbow, has told us about the implications.
3, As one season closes, another one begins. Just eight days after the thrilling 2015 season finished, the fixtures for the 2016 season have been announced. As a special treat, we have an EIGHT-PAGE pull-out of every fixture for next year, an absolute neccessity for all Rugby League lovers!
4, Which Salford speedster is in demand across Super League? That, plus much more Super League news and rumours, can be found in the paper.
5, There was plenty of activity in the Championship last week, with one Saints star moving to Sheffield and a Super League champion moving to London.
6, The European Championships commenced this weekend, with two high quality matches for our reporters to feast upon. They’ve served up the very best reaction of both games.
7, Our Mailbag continues to increase in weight every week, and this week’s catalogue of letters are as good as ever. From Sam Burgess to Old Trafford, our Mailbag is full of wonderful treats this week.
