[imagebrowser id=12]Rugby World has a caught a large dose of World Cup fever this month with the second part of our sensational World Cup Guide, featuring the Wales, Fiji, South Africa, Samoa and Namibia pool. There’s nowhere else you’ll find interview with the coach and captain of every one of the World Cup sides, except in Rugby World. With the Guide it means another whopping 200-page issue to get you in the mood for New Zealand. We also speak to Mike Tindall, Mike Phillips, Rob Kearney and even travel to Australia with Chris Cusiter as he tries everything he can to kick start his World Cup campaign. In another packed issue the four stars are joined by a myriad of other players and coaches including Chris Wyles, Morgan Stoddart, Tomas O’Leary, Alasdair Strokosch, Eliota Sapolu, Manu Tuilagi and Toby Faletau. We also get the low-down on Scottish rugby from a panel of fans, pay homage to both Munster’s Magners League triumph and Saracens’ Aviva Premiership title in our Tourist Series.———————————————————————————————————————————————–The Front Row…30 minutes with Dave AttwoodFuture Faces: Matt Kvesic and Paddy JacksonAndy Blyth: The former Sale centre on climbing Mount KilimanjaroPaul Turner: What do Wales need to do to prevent another 92-0 defeat?John Kirwan: How rugby can give Japan hope after a year of tragedySteve Thompson and Neil Back: A trip to meet soldiers in Afghanistan made a big impact on two World Cup winners, says Sam PetersFrank Keating: What would England give for a modern-day Jeremy Guscott as the World Cup loomsSpotlight on…Chris Wyles: On-field success has been tinged by off-field sadness for Saracens’ USA Eagle.
