Rugby News magazine: Another masthead! I was thrilled to be asked to write for Rugby News, a New Zealand-based specialist rugby magazine that with this May/June issue, is now also on sale in Australia. It’s highly likely my involvement will be ongoing, which is obviously great news.
In this issue, I’ve tackled the often touchy subject of the right number of Australian sides in Super Rugby, and specifically, the presence of the Western Force and the Melbourne Rebels. For what it’s worth, I think talk of contraction is complete nonsense, and that time and the continuation of the NRC is what will really build Australian rugby depth..
