With the London 2012 Olympics getting underway – coinciding nicely with the off-season in Rugby – things will be a little quieter here on The Rugby Blog over the next fortnight.
We’ll still be keeping one eye on the Super Rugby final next weekend and will complete the season of Super Rugby predictions, but otherwise we’ll just be getting stuck into the Olympic action and resting up before a huge Rugby season gets underway.
Check out our British Olympian XV to get you in the mood…!
It’s Lions season!
From mid-August, we’ll be back with a bang as The Rugby Championship gets underway, and we’ll start the build-up in earnest to the Aviva Premiership and RaboDirect Pro12 getting underway in September.
We have a new editor to introduce you to, and we’re putting together a bigger and better team then ever to guide you through the year, all the way to Australia and the 2013 Lions Tour next summer. Get in touch if you’d like to be involved.
We can’t wait, and hopefully you’ll join us for the ride.
