We want to know what you think of the latest issue of SA Rugby magazine, which is currently on sale.
What articles did you enjoy and which articles didn’t quite do it for you? What else would you like to see in the mag? Post your comments below.
Just a reminder of what’s in this issue:
– Morne Steyn on that penalty against the Lions, his friendship and rivalry with Ruan Pienaar and why Derick Hougaard had to leave the Bulls for him to stay. He also expresses his desire to have a long, successful international career, rather than be remembered as a ‘one-hit wonder’.
– The Springboks achieved a memorable series win against the British & Irish Lions, but that triumph was overshadowed by their coach’s bizarre behaviour
– Why the Lions could change the way they tour in the future after a South African trip that – with the exception of the Tests – failed to match the hype
– Argentina desperately want to play in an expanded Tri-Nations competition, but they will first have to meet Sanzar’s demands
– Beast Mtawarira on how he improved his scrumming technique, his brother joining the Sharks Academy, and his dream of winning the IRB Player of the Year award
– With Ali Williams out for the season, Isaac Ross has a vital role to play for the All Blacks in the Tri-Nations
– After a short but successful stint with new European Cup champions Leinster, Rocky Elsom is back in the Wallabies camp

– Jake White’s audit uncovered some deep, dark truths at the Golden Lions. Now it’s time for change
– Chris Jack on nurturing Western Province’s young talent, why the All Blacks will struggle in the Tri-Nations, and regaining his Test place in time for the 2011 World Cup
– Jake White’s Winning Way allows schools and club coaches to pick the brains of men who have experienced success at the highest levels of the game
– Ex-Cheetahs winger Philip Burger was a key member of Perpignan’s Top 14 championship-winning squad. He chats to SA Rugby magazine about their secret to success, the South African influence at the club, Dan Carter’s brilliance and the challenges that await Frans Steyn
