Hello folks and welcome to ‘Get ’em Onside!’, a new rugby league opinion blog. I hope to bring you my views as well as provoking discussion about the best spectator sport in the land.

I myself am, as of 2017, a Leeds Rhinos season ticket holder but have followed the sport for years, regularly going to York City Knights matches when I was younger – that’s where the idea for the blog title came from – heckling the referees. The idea to start this blog was borne out of a lack of other rugby league blogs when I have been searching for more to read and engage with about the game so I hope you feel you can do both of those things with the articles I post. I will be aiming to post at least one article a week so there will be regular new content for you to read.

I will shortly have both Instagram and Twitter accounts for the site so I hope you fancy following them when I have!

Happy reading!
