Planet Rugby

In December 2015, I was recommended by the then-Lancashire Rugby press officer Peter Elliott, to Planet Rugby founder Colin Newboult, who was looking for writers to cover matches on a weekly basis.

Each week I’m allocated games and have to submit the match report as soon after the final whistle as possible. Below are all the reports I’ve written for the site.

Some articles may contain editorial mistakes that were beyond my control.
