Firstly, may I extend a hearty Yorkshire welcome to you all and, more importantly, to my blog – Under the Posts. You’re more than likely reading this because I have directed you here or you’ve found this from Google/Bing on some random search terms. Nevertheless, thank you for coming and I hope you enjoy your stay. Just click here to access the blog, however, I have added some other pages such as season previews, which I hope you will enjoy.
Why choose to do a blog?
It seems like all and sundry are doing a blog nowadays so I thought ‘well, why the heck not?’ and joined the bandwagon. This blog will feature articles from all aspects of rugby league: Super League to NRL, licensing to promotion and relegation, lower league to amateur. I will add some photos of my travels and ground guides from the grounds I have been to. If anyone wants to get in touch and add some information or to help with a ground guide, drop me a line at underthepostsblog (at) gmail (dot) com.
I am a rugby league fanatic born right in the middle of the ‘Heartlands’. Whilst I have an interest in the majority of sports, nothing can ever come close to what is known as the Greatest Game. Whilst I am a lifelong season-ticket holder at Castleford Tigers (cue accusations of bias!), I have the whole game of rugby league at heart and want to share my passion for the game with people who may not necessarily be aware of how entertaining, thrilling and physical the sport is.
With a University degree in Sports Journalism and Media, I have contributed to The Times’ Rugby League Blog, both Castleford Tigers and Hull FC match programmes and more recently helped develop Lasttackle.com, more widely known now as loverugbyleague.com. Under the Posts was born there and still remains on the website, however, this independent blog has been made to write my thoughts away from Love Rugby League. I will try to add as much information as possible regarding clubs, their grounds and everything else to make this into an interesting compendium and not just the thoughts of some random aspiring journalist-come-Castleford fan.
Please get involved, comment, feel free to disagree and contribute. I enjoy good discussion but more importantly with those, who like me, are passionate about the Greatest Game. You can also add me on Twitter with @UnderPostsBlog.
