Luke launches new look

Having Luke Watson on the cover of the new-look SA Rugby magazine, on sale today, could not be more appropriate.

sar_116.jpgRugby teams, like magazines, cannot stand still. Stick with the same game plan for too long and you’ll lose your cutting edge. Stay in your comfort zone and you’ll never make progress. Ignore new ideas and you’ll never produce anything new.

We have evolved our look and gone graphic to give the mag a vibe more in keeping with 2006. The use of angles, italicised text and 2D shapes, make the mag reader-friendly and easier on the eye. The content remains as good as ever.

In the mag this month:

– How the SABC snubbed rugby

– Why the Boks need a fetcher

– Rating refs: We publish a full referees evaluation report from the Super 14

– Butch James’s Bok comeback

– Why Aaron Mauger is the key man in the All Black backline

– Our proposal for a World Club Championship

– Q&A with Chris Latham

– Columns from Naas, Mallett and Keo
