One of the biggest challenges with living in a remote area of South Africa, which I do because of my work - I am a missionary and theological lecturer at a college - is poor internet access and expensive television subscription rates. My daughter and I spent much of last season following text updates on the internet which would frequently stall as the internet went down. As a result, I found it very difficult to follow games and it was extremely frustrating.
As I could not watch the games, I decided to start writing down the results of clubs and the league tables when I could get online. By doing this in a systematic format over the course of this season, I have discovered that I am now accruing a range of interesting facts about the six Welsh clubs, facts which I myself have established from my own work. As I started using Twitter to communicate with people, I decided to start throwing out a couple of random facts and from there it was just a small step to develop a blog which incorporates some of these statistics into an overview of the clubs.
The big challenge I have compared to most other fans is that I can only get to the occasional games when I am back in Britain. I therefore have to make serious efforts to properly research information on players and the game. Obviously, I use this research to create something that is entirely my own and therefore, even though there may be match reports on the six clubs, they do not resemble the kind of match reports you get in the press.
Hopefully you will like the style and approach I have taken and will forgive any mistakes in detail. I try very hard to ensure that my information is completely accurate but the distance will sometimes make this a challenge. If you are a supporter of one of the six, maybe we'll get to meet when I am next at your club. My next visit to the UK is at the end of March.
Once again, thank you for visiting the blog and for taking the time to read this somewhat lengthy profile about who I am. Have an awesome day.
