what you should be talking about this month…

“Bigger is not necessarily better in the modern game” CHESLIN KOLBE was told many times that he was too small to play professional rugby. The Springboks wing categorically proved those doubters wrong in 2019, with his speed and footwork helping both Toulouse and South Africa win trophies. Yet his is not an uncommon tale. There are myriad examples of players being told they wouldn’t make it because of their size, or lack thereof. The knock-on effect of this perception of needing to be big and powerful is youngsters feeling pressure to ‘bulk up’ and resorting to doping. South Africa’s annual Craven Week schoolboy event has returned failed drugs tests, while a 2018 report by Leeds Beckett University found that 58% of schoolboys surveyed in England viewed the use of banned substances as a…

“rugby set to face big questions in the 2020s”

HAPPY NEW Year – and Happy New Decade! These milestones always inspire periods of reflection and assessment. Where do we stand? How can we be better? What does the future hold? Here at Rugby World, we thought we’d address those questions as the game embarks on the 2020s. Issues like player safety and the sustainability of clubs and unions are top of the agenda. Yet the potential for growth is also huge – it’s all about whether the right decisions are made and whether the greater good is put above individual gains. We look at many of those topics in our Future of Rugby feature (P30-37) while we’ve also picked out 20 players who are destined for big things (P40-45). Stephen Jones (P60-63) has predicted what the game will look like in…

“i bought two salmon, stuck one in his glove compartment and put another under his seat”

We heard you had a hook-up for Irn Bru at the World Cup in Japan? Yeah, one of the fans actually brought some over. They knew that I was craving Irn Bru and I think WP Nel made some phone calls and one of the guys brought some over on first class. He brought me 12 bottles – I was delighted! And you rescued someone from a house fire recently. What happened?! I was out the back of our house, putting stuff in the tumble dryer and I could smell this smoke. I thought it was my tumble dryer, so I was gutted. I thought I’d have to pay £300 for a new one and I’d only just bought it. I was raging. But I looked up and it was actually the…
