Always on the lookout for new rugby websites, I recently came across one of the most-exciting (nay, trend-setting) Rugby e-magazines around these days.
Union Sports Mag is one of those nifty interactive sites where you digitally turn the page by pulling your mouse across the screen or, in my case, sliding my index-finger down the top of my iMac’s magic mouse.
Appels graces the cover of the first issue of Union Sports Mag
One of the cool features that I really appreciate is being able to watch a video interview ON the page without having to visit another page or site; and the latest issue of Union Sports Mag has many videos. My personal favorite being the looong interview with the former-BlitzBok Gio “Appels” Aplon. The dimunitive full-back is not only a solid last-defense for the Stormers and Springboks, he’s also quite comfortable in front of the camera. (other than canvassing for free bricks!)
I don’t want to give too much away but, if you were at our Hong Kong Sevens Dinner at the Hong Kong Football Club or in the HK Stadium’s Boerewors Bend last year, you’ll be happy to see Blades again in the video interview on page 17.
I’m not even going to mention the ‘Hottie of the Month” feature.
Lastly, the Union Sports Mag would be a like a flat Carlsberg at the Hong Kong Stadium last weekend if it wasn’t fully integrated with your favorite social media platforms. Interact with the publishers via FaceBook, Twitter, StumbleUpon, and many more.

Did I mention that Union Sports Mag is FREE?
