This is me

SAM_2555Hello. My name is James Harrington. I’m an English freelance sports journalist living it up in southwest France. I have put this website together so my work is in one handy place.

I’ve been writing about sport – notably rugby – in France, Europe and internationally for several years.

My work has featured on a number of websites, including ESPN and Rugby Pass. I have also covered the European Champions Cup for UK and Ireland news agency The Press Association, write for The Irish Examiner, and contribute a weekly column on French rugby to The Rugby Paper.

And I have popped up on the occasional unsuspecting podcast – and even discussed the state of French rugby live on the radio in the UK and New Zealand.

So, if you are looking for an insight into rugby, whether it’s a column, op-ed, feature, live blog, podcast interview, or anything else you can think of, please feel free to click here and drop me a line.

And, if sport is not your thing, I’m also an experienced digital and print production journalist. I write and edit online articles, and design and sub-edit pages for France’s only English-language newspaper The Connexion.
