This is me

SAM_2555 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 websites including ESPN and Rugby Pass. I  cover 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. I’ve also contributed articles to Rugby World and South Africa Rugby among others.

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

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

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. And I’ve been known to do some commercial writing and social media work, too…
