  There is a general standard of clichés when it comes to music journalism, that all writers are at one time or another guilty of using; describing an act as the “bastard love child of x and y”, or using the term “meteoric rise” when meteors tend to be best known for their falling.

Lavishing Ladies Row for Surrey Glory


Published 14th May 2013


Fresh from the social thrill of the Rowing Club team photo – where Men’s Captain, Nathan O’Reilly found himself surrounded by almost as many females as he wakes up next to on a Saturday morning – the Women’s Squad sought to make their mark at the Women’s Eights Head of the River Race.

Sport is the answer we’ve been waiting for.


Published 21st Nov 2012


  A couple of years ago, if someone asked me if I played sport I would have looked at them as if they had said something dirty.
