MARK PALMER, rugby correspondent for The Sunday Times in Scotland, is this week’s guest, joining The Offside Line’s David Barnes – still on a high after predicting exactly the right score for the Scotland v France match – and host Jack Reid, to dissect last weekend’s action, lament the lack of crowds at live sporting events, and to take a look ahead at Thursday night’s AGM [part 2.1].

The Offside Line Season Appeal 2020 - 2021

Since our launch in 2016, The Offside Line has established itself as the leading independent, dedicated media outlet for Scottish rugby, averaging just over 250,000 page views per calendar month during 2020 – which is not bad going given that the game was in lockdown for five of those months!

We are passionate about rugby at all levels across the whole of Scotland (and beyond) and are committed to continue shining a light on our sport in order to maintain its profile during these uncertain times.

We also believe that it is more important than ever that we report on and analyse how the game is being run locally, nationally and globally, at a time when some major decisions on issues such as season-structure and finance will have a profound impact on rugby’s future.

If you value what we do and feel able to support us in our quest to continually grow the breadth and depth of Scottish rugby coverage, you can do this by making a one-off donation, or by supporting us with a monthly contribution.

Thank you for reading The Offside Line.

  1. We need to develop our attack more, but apart from rolling maul defence, we’re alright at the back.
