LV= hunt for new young rugby reporter

Figure image
LV=, the title sponsors of the LV= Cup, have launched a competition to unearth the next generation of young rugby writers.

It is the second successive year that the LV= Young Reporter Competition has been held and Tigers supporters are being encouraged to get involved.

The LV= Young Reporter Competition invites children aged under 16 to submit a 200 word report on any LV= Cup pool fixture online. Reporters can file their copy on the RFU website by clicking here.

A winner will be selected in each of the four LV= Cup pool rounds, from which the overall winner will be chosen.

The 2013/14 LV= Young Reporter will receive four VIP tickets to the LV= Cup Final and an opportunity to interview Tigers and England legend Lewis Moody, an LV= ambassador. They will also win the chance to attend the post-Final press conference and write a match report of the game, which will be published on rfu.com, lv.com and premiershiprugby.com.

And two runners up will also receive four tickets each to the final. All winners must be accompanied by an adult over the age of 18.

To kick-off, here are some tips from LV= for writing a match report:

Avoid detailing every aspect of the game, include the bits that lead to scores.

Give it an attention grabbing headline; there are lots of match reports, we want people to read yours.

Remember to list the half-time and full-time score. That's the important bit.

Try to begin the report with a brief background about the game: where is the team in their respective pools? Have they got some big names playing for them? Is there anything special about the game?

And good luck!
