I am currently studying Sports Journalism at Leeds Trinity University. Born in Darlington but a huge Middlesbrough fan. I also enjoy Cycling, Rugby Union, Cricket, Tennis, Golf, American Football and Formula One.
The race for promotion to the Premier League is starting to hot up. With 11 games to go the top 8 are separated by just 9 points. I take a look at the remaining fixtures for these 8 teams and calculate who has the toughest run in.
This past weekend saw the first ever Rugby League World Club Series. This is an expansion on the World Club Challenge which took place in previous years. The new series pits the top 3 teams from the Super League and the NRL against each other in 3 games. So, how successful was this new idea? And can it have success in the future?
Back in September, before the start of the NFL season. I decided to put a series of bets on (which can be found here). I predicted the winners of each division, plus threw in 4 over/under picks. Today I review how accurate these predictions were (prepare for smugness).

Last night saw the 2014 Sports Personality of the Year presentation and I can’t help thinking that the show and the award has become a farce. The bizarre booking of Simple Minds to open the show, the sheer tediousness of the entire event, the ridiculous shortlist of candidates and the public choosing the wrong winner. Is it time for SPOTY to change the format of the show?
