Inside this issue:
We hope you’ll enjoy reliving all 28 games of a historic World Cup tournament with us in this spectacular souvenir issue.
England may have been pipped to the post by Australia in the final, but it was the closest encounter for many years, and three members of the Wall of White rub shoulders with a selection of Australia’s World Champions – and for the first time ever, one Tongan – in the latest World XIII which we reveal inside. It’s quite a line up!
Richard Silverwood gives his opinion on the World Cup refereeing controversy that saw Matt Cecchin become the centre of an unpleasant social media storm down under and England physio Dave O’Sullivan gives us a behind the scenes insight into how he keeps his troops fit and ready for action in the pressure cooker of a major international tournament.
We also catch up with a former England star of yesteryear Paul Newlove, who looks back on his own appearance in a World Cup final and tells us what he’s up to nowadays.
Can you believe it is fifty years since the first Rugby League games were played on a Sunday. We take them for granted now, but they caused quite a stir in 1967. We look back to those early experimental days when Rugby League once again broke the sporting mould.
There’s plenty more besides in another packed issue!
