Afternoon all.

Hopefully you are all enjoying the 606v2 experience on these boards but the admin team has some great ambitions for the new year. On that note, we are looking to get some feature writers on board for sporting events - people who can attend games and/or report on events.

If you are interested in becoming an official member of the 606v2 writing team, please let me know - we might be able to sort you out with tickets for matches etc

At this stage, we are just collating names, along with the teams and events you might want to cover.

We cant promise anything but why not have high ambitions!

Cheers

Adam

Count me in for any golf, Manchester united games or F1 events.

I would also be willing to do detailed write up's on golf courses with pictures and analysis of the experience and architecture of the course.

I am specifically looking for people who would like to attend paying events.

There is nothing stopping anyone writing articles at the moment anyway but I am trying to get a press team together for pro events OK (so Pro12 etc)

I think some sports would struggle. E.g Tennis which is played all around the world. I think some writers would need to be given benefit of the doubt when not attending events.

Just to clarify, we cannot pay for you to write articles or get to events but we might be able to get tickets sorted if you can get to the venue yourself.

Feel free to review events from the TV as well if you like!

I go to quite a few as a 'neutral' (I'm an O's follower Sad )
Last season I went to Blues v Scarlets (Magners , as was), Leinster v Toulouse (HEC Semi), Leinster v Saints (HEC Final - but then , in every final a Welshman is a neutral; Rolling Eyes ).
Dragons v Russia (pre-season).
This season - Scarlets v Munster (HEC & the return), Blues v Edinburgh (HEC)

So if you wanted a two-eyed, unbiased report on a game and I was going I'd be happy to help out OK

Yeah! I could have flown to Australia, New Zealand and Argentina for free. Stayed in top class accommodation, eat and drink for free and all I had to do was talk aout my favourite sport.

Now I have to sit at home, pay for my own beer and biltong talk about rugby.

I'm up for it if possible but as maestegmafia alluded to i am also interested to know a bit more about what this entails. But i love tennis, footy, rugby, cricket and cycling with olympic stuff as well.
I'm a young budding journalist and if given the chance to do this it wud be great experience.

I will be happy to cover the Madrid Masters Tennis tournament.

If that shameful Prince of Monaco hadn't scaremongered about ETA I could've covered the Olympics this year, although Spain would've surely defaulted by now if he had kept his mouth shut.

I can cover the Kings Cup quarter final between Real Madrid and Barcelona for the return leg.

Finally, may I put my name down for the 2015 Rugby World Cup as I expect to be there for some of the NZ games and any tickets for the final would be greatly appreciated. angel
