After a quiet few weeks whilst I was in Africa, we’re back in business and gearing up for a big (and very long) season on The Rugby Blog.
Both of these competitions should hold their own degree of intrigue. The new Premiership sponsor might want to do things differently, Exeter Chiefs will grace the fields of top flight clubs, and there will be three live games on every weekend. The Italians are joining the Magners League, and all eyes will be focused on their opening battles, and every club in the UK will have players with one eye on the Rugby World Cup – now is the time to break into the international setup if they want to be in contention for selection this time next year.
We’re expanding our coverage here on The Rugby Blog, with more articles about Ireland, Wales and Scotland, more player interviews, more podcasts, more polls, more opinion and more discussion. We’ve had some great feedback on the new site design, and we’ll continue to make enhancements.
As we mentioned before, we are always on the lookout for new additions to the team. There are lots of passionate rugby fans out there, so please feel free to contribute – if you’re a budding journalist or just fancy a rant, you’ll probably be welcomed, or if you are a photographer and would like to show off some of your shots, please get in touch.
Also, we need you to help spread the word. The easiest way to do that is to click the ‘Like’ button after every article, and post links on forums, Twitter and Facebook and help us to encourage some debate. The site is always better when there are lots of comments to read, so leave your own thoughts and get your mates to do the same.
Finally, feedback is always welcome. Drop us a line with any thoughts on the site, features you’d like to see, or whatever you’d like to get off your chest. We look forward to hearing from you!
