Tom and Phil were first inspired to start writing about rugby during the 1998-99 rebel season. They followed Cardiff around England as the club struck a blow for those who wanted change in Welsh rugby. Sadly, no Anglo-Welsh league followed that season with the WRU turing down offers for four teams to join the top English clubs, but Tom and Phil continued to write their match reports.
In recent years, the site has expanded to take on a wider statistical view of the game, which you can track throw the analysis pages, or even follow the form of other European clubs through the club index page.
Phil is an alway-accessible presence on Twitter, and you can find him at @rugbyPhilBB. Phil has his own blog, but his articles are duplicated here in the Editorials section. As for Tom, his time is spent tweaking the database on which this site now sits, so you can blame him for all the errors! If you have any ideas on any improvements you'd like to see to the site, or if you've spotted any errors, you can reach Tom at @Tom4Jones or simply send him an email.
