About the XV

The XV is a new home for premium rugby content.


We are a subscription-based platform delivering the highest quality rugby content from award-winning journalists, opinionated pundits, leading coaches, data analysts and importantly, the biggest stars in the game.

Our aim is to change how rugby is covered and create a more sustainable model for the best rugby content online.

Fred Culazzo – Director of The XV

We are not supported by advertising, meaning we don’t have to rely on a sensationalist, clickbait-driven agenda. Our promise to you is to provide insightful, intelligent and thought-provoking journalism you want to read.

Every month we will deliver an array of exceptional content for less than the price of a cup of coffee. We will cover every corner of the rugby globe with long-read features, opinion pieces, in-depth analysis and columns from rugby’s leading minds. As we grow, we will also cater for those who enjoy engaging podcasts, live video Q&A’s, live events and documentaries.

The first month is completely FREE so you can see what we have to offer.

The more subscribers that join this initiative, the more we can invest back into meaningful journalism that matters, and the more stories we will deliver to you each month. We hope you can join us.
