Having Luke Watson on the cover of the new-look SA Rugby magazine, on sale today, could not be more appropriate.
Rugby teams, like magazines, cannot stand still. Stick with the same game plan for too long and youâ€™ll lose your cutting edge. Stay in your comfort zone and youâ€™ll never make progress. Ignore new ideas and youâ€™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:
â€“ How the SABC snubbed rugby
â€“ Why the Boks need a fetcher
â€“ Rating refs: We publish a full referees evaluation report from the Super 14
â€“ Butch James’s Bok comeback
â€“ Why Aaron Mauger is the key man in the All Black backline
â€“ Our proposal for a World Club Championship
â€“ Q&A with Chris Latham
â€“ Columns from Naas, Mallett and Keo
