I know that I slag off soccer for being a year round sport. (The European Cup final was only a few weeks ago and Rhyl have already been knocked out of this year's competition.)
But I need my rugby fix to sustain me. Now that the terrific Lions tour has ended, attention will switch to the Tri Nations (Sky Sports, Saturday mornings, Sky+).
It'll keep me going until the real rugby starts. Beginning with Ebbw Vale's home friendly against Barking on 8 August. Keep up to date with all of Ebbw's fixtures and team news on the 'new, best-ever' website at ebbwvalerfc.co.uk.
