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.

Santa Claus is coming to town and so is December’s Forty20! Alas, for the England men and women’s teams, World Cup glory wasn’t to be. But the RLWC2021 just ended brought many more reasons to be cheerful, not least the crowning of our world champion wheelchair and PDRL sides. This issue we wrap up our comprehensive coverage of an event that delivered on several fronts, destined one day, we hope, to be considered a genuine game-changer. Inside: our now traditional ‘Five Drives’ Christmas message is delivered by no less a hero than ‘Sir’ Kevin Sinfield. Columnist Brian Noble – just flown in from the beaches of Tenerife! – leads calls to build on RLWC2021’s achievements. And Ian Boldsworth makes his return to our pages with a song of praise for the tournament. Phil Caplan anticipates an exciting future for Wheelchair RL worldwide, whatever comes to pass elsewhere, and the path to RLWC2025 in France is already revealed! As usual at this time of year, we pay our annual tribute to those absent friends who left us over the past 12 months and offer an RL books Christmas reading list. Oh, and you can win a copy of the new Super League Grand Final DVD. In short, it′s another packed edition as 2022 winds to its end. Forty20 wishes you an enjoyable and peaceful Christmas - thank you for your ongoing support.
