The Rugby Paper launches north of the border

The Rugby Paper is launching a Scottish edition this weekend, in the midst of the Heineken Cup’s second set of matches, and ahead of next month’s autumn internationals.

Rugby PaperSince it began publication in England and Wales in 2008, the Sunday-published title has established itself as the news-stand’s best selling rugby title, covering the previous day’s matches from around the world, and featuring the Scottish national team, as well as sides in the RaboDirect Pro 12 and their Scottish feeder leagues.

The weekly’s 48 pages regularly include more than 60 match reports, round-ups from 22 leagues and results for more than 500 matches.

Priced at £1.50, The Rugby Paper will be available every Sunday in leading supermarkets and newsagents.
