Duncan Grieve, editor and publisher, The Spinoff (New Zealand)

James Harrington was both editor of and writer for our Rugby Pass custom editorial product, and throughout that time did a superb job writing and reporting. His view into the northern hemisphere game is broad and deep, with a particular affinity for the intricacies and politics of France’s Top 14 competition. He delivers cerebral analysis and searching journalism, and I would recommend him wholeheartedly and without reservation to anyone looking for feature writing and reporting within or without of rugby.
