About Bryn Palmer (0)

I'm a senior broadcast journalist working on BBC Sport's website, and responsible for looking after our rugby output. I'm 35, Welsh (don't hold that against me) and have been at the BBC since early 2002.

My journalism career started with the Press Association in Scotland 10 years ago, writing about everything from the Old Firm to curling, before I moved on to the Scotsman newspaper.

I then spent a wonderful year travelling in Australia and New Zealand, freelancing for various British newspapers, and taking in the Sydney Olympics and the 2001 Lions tour. I've also covered the last two Rugby World Cups, including England's triumph down under four years ago.

Having grown up in south Wales, I'm obviously a Manchester United fan - since I was five, honestly - and have a soft spot for Hereford, who I used to cheer from the home end at Edgar Street. Rugby-wise my heart's with Wales, but I cheer on all the Celtic countries.

My body won't allow for rugby anymore but I still play five-a-side football, a bit of tennis and golf, and love skiing, snowboarding and water-skiing.

Bryn Palmer is the BBC Sport website’s rugby union editor.
