Vol 1 Issue 1
Forty-20 features thought-provoking articles by the game’s most respected writers and fascinating face-to-face interviews with rugby league’s most engaging personalities.
The trial issue is the first of rugby league's biggest year in decades: January 2013. Inside, Brian Noble takes a club-by-club look ahead to the Super League season ahead, while Gareth Walker does likewise with an equally historic Championships campaign.
Elsewhere, Angela Powers of Sky Sports grills Leeds skipper Kevin Sinfield on his surge in popularity; Andy Wilson profiles New Zealand's 'Mad Butcher'; St Helens prop Louie McCarthy-Scarsbrook prepares for action; and Mike Rylance profiles a France side preparing for the World Cup.
Publishing wide-ranging and open-minded stories that are bright and witty, punchy and intelligent, Forty-20 is unafraid to grapple with the big issues of rugby league.
