The Rugby Blog’s new look

James HutchisonSenior Analyst INovember 1, 2008

We’ve given The Rugby Blog a facelift this weekend, so please take a look around at the all-new site.

We have widened the whole page to spread things out a little and make it easier to read. The navigation should also be much improved with clear sections taking you to articles on club rugby and international rugby, as well as our feature articles section.

We are also launching The Rugby Blog newsletter—we had to end our previous attempts at this due to ridiculous spam issues, but it’s back and better than ever in HTML format. Please leave us your details here if you’d like to be included on the list.

Our coverage will continue to expand, with more articles about the Magners League, French Top 14, the Southern Hemisphere competitions as well as our usual focus on the Guinness Premiership, Heineken Cup and of course, international rugby.

Our new relationship with The Rugby Paper will give us more exposure, so please support the initiative and leave your comments on the articles—a selection of these will then feature in the rugby newspaper every Sunday. The quality of the site relies on the comments and discussion, so make sure you have your say. We’ve sent the odd t-shirt or freebie to regular contributors, so you may get lucky.

We’d like to hear your feedback—on the new site, the newsletter, articles you’d like to see more of, things you’d like to see less of…whatever is on your mind. Please leave a comment on this article or send me an email.

As always we are open to contributions from our readers—if there is something you’d like to write about, drop me a line and we should be able to publish it.
