Your ultimate World Cup guide!

SA Rugby magazine's bumper 188-page World Cup preview issue is available in English and Afrikaans.

Our last reader survey indicated that we had a significant number of Afrikaans readers who would prefer to read the magazine in their own language, and they will be able to do so from now on. While the Afrikaans edition will be clearly marked as such with a cover slightly different to that of the English edition, the content will be the same.

The Afrikaans edition will be available in selected areas only, so if you can't find it, or would like to change your current subscription from English to Afrikaans, please email [email protected] for assistance or phone her at (021) 416-0141.
