A message from John
Greetings sports fans. As part of my return to journalism, I’ve written an article for the current edition of Global Sports Quarterly on the effect that introducing professionalism to rugby in 1995 has had. My article starts on page 32 but the whole magazine is a great read for anyone interested in sport.
