what you should be talking about this month

THE ACTION is underway in Japan, with the ninth World Cup one of seven to date to be played in the September-October-November period. A couple of early editions – 1987 and 1995 – took place in May-June, but the tournament has generally been played later in the year. It will be the same for France 2023. But is this the optimum time for rugby’s global showpiece? With the northern and southern hemisphere seasons at different times – and a global season as hard to nail down as a shutter in a typhoon – there is no period that’s perfect for everyone. However, with most players at the World Cup signed to clubs in Europe, should those leagues be impacted most? Reports of players being told to choose club over country and sacrifice…

“the japanese are embracing the world cup”

WE’RE NOW right in the thick of the ninth Rugby World Cup and while this issue is all about celebrating the stars of the game, we should also pay tribute to those lesser known. On the opening night in Tokyo, those worthy of praise were the hordes of Japan fans bedecked in red and white who stood to applaud the defeated Russians at the final whistle before hailing their own heroes. The Japanese are embracing rugby – even the manhole covers feature the RWC 2019 logo – and it’s been brilliant to experience a unique culture outside of the sport’s traditional territories. We’ve included several inspiring stories from Japan 2019 in our free mini mag – if yours is missing, please email rugbyworldletters@ti-media.com – and got to know star players in this issue. And…

“working in mcdonald’s for two weeks was my worst job. i got no tips”

What is it like on national tours? In August we were in Fiji, which was fantastic. The people were lovely and the food was delicious. Everything was fresh, which was awesome because you know we love our processed food in America! We went to one of the national rainforests and there were lots of waterfalls and pools you could swim in. You played for Northampton and Cardiff Blues. Where is home now? I’ve been in New Orleans since December. It’s the home of Mardi Gras and blues and jazz reign as king here. It’s known for music and primarily it’s Cajun food. The city is a bit rough round the edges but there’s so much good culture. What do you want to do after rugby? I want to get into commercial real estate.…
