East Region goes from website to blog

In a slightly unpublicised move (well, I missed it) East Region have switched from using the RFU's official database-driven website to using a blog instead. And having wrestled with the maddening, overly complex, infuriating nightmare that is that RFU system I do not blame Phil and his team for taking that step!!

Actually I came close to doing this last season - I quickly gave up with the "official" system! - but in the end thought it better and more efficient to simply work through the county blogs as that way dupilication could be avoided and readers would not have to look into two places. But things in the world of blogs have moved on and now, with the ability to incorporate newsfeeds from one blog in the design of another, this is no longer a problem. So its a big welcome East Region Blog!

Granted that, in any practical sense at the moment, the number of our players actually interested in the activities of East Region can be counted on the fingers of one hand (and moreover with the majority of digits to spare!) but in the future it is possible that our representation may rise again, so its something to keep an eye on.

As a result the newsfeed from the East Blog appears in the column to the left below the Herts County blog feed. As with the county feed you will see links to the latest five articles on the East Blog, automatically updated when new articles appear. The link on the left under "Official rugby websites" has also now been changed to the new site.

PS: North East Region have also launched a website. Okay, we don't have anyone with any practical interest in that region at all (unless you can qualify for a region by parental birthplace!) but its still interesting to see how the game is developing elsewhere - especially in a major centre of the game like the North East.
