Hey again, just over two weeks into the new year and I have been given the opportunity to do something which I have only ever dreamed of doing.

As you are aware, my main passion in life is rugby, but I also love photography and writing.

Now, due to my love of writing and rugby, I found a story online about a new rugby league side starting up in Long Island, New York. In that article, they said that they were looking for players to join them for the 2018 season.

So I thought, why not try?

I told them, a little bit about myself and who I played rugby for, within hours I had a reply saying that they would more than welcome me over there.

The best thing about working towards this dream is that, not only will I be playing rugby. I will be living on Long Island, home to my favourite ever musician, Billy Joel, and it has always been a goal of mine to visit the USA at some point in my life.

By the end of April 2018, I hope to be ready to go over there, and pull on a Long Island Osprey’s shirt.

However, a lot of hard work and organisation needs to be done between now and then. Sorting out visas, health insurance, employment, accommodation, and all the other little bits and pieces that go with it.

For now though, this is a goal which I am looking to achieve. So look ahead for some potential fundraising events.

Please like, share and comment.

See ya soon 🙂

Bradley.
