• Rugby Magazine has it’s monthly online update up … complete with a cover photo of a guy making the “O” face.
— Women’s player profile on Amy Daniels
— And an editorial on the recent championships, which includes a reference to a letter to the editor complaining that Rugby Magazine wastes space by reporting on women’s rugby. And to the writer of this letter I say, you are a sad, sad little man. And I would like to introduce you to my cleats sometime.
And is anyone else waiting from this magazine with “all the news that fits” to just go fully online and charge a subscription that way? Hello?! Of course, that means they might have to update more often and more timely … *sigh*.
