Which RFU Championship side do you support?
Being Irish and living in London, I follow the London/Greater London clubs, so have my fingers crossed for Esher.

How long have you supported the club?
I have been a rugby fan for as long as I can remember and I really enjoy following the RFU Championship. It’s never easy for the team coming from the Aviva Premiership to get promoted and it’s getting more difficult every season.

What is the best thing about being a RFU Championship rugby supporter?
Games like Bristol Rugby vs. London Welsh! That game really highlighted the talent in the RFU Championship and was a brilliant game from start to finish.

How do you see the RFU Championship going? 
I expect London Welsh to be there or there abouts at the business end again this season. London Scottish and Esher will hopefully move up the table as well.

Who is you player of the season so far?
Normally I'd be looking at the backs but Ed “Jacko” Jackson (London Welsh) has scored eight tries from eight league appearances! Awesome start to the season.

Who do you think will win the 2011-12 RFU Championship season?
Bristol have to be a good shout, but it’s early days yet. Any side can win on their day in this competition.

What do you enjoy about RFU Championship rugby?
It’s very competitive; there are 5 or 6 teams in the mix to finish at the top this season.

Sum up the RFU Championship in three words: Exciting, competitive and tight.
