Rugby League Planet is looking for writers to help cover the 2013 Rugby League World Cup in England, Ireland, France and Wales.

We are looking for people who are already based in the UK and France or who will be there for the World Cup. We want our readers to feel like they are there at the 2013 RLWC with you!

We want our readers to feel the build-up to all the games, be across team changes along with the match day experience. We want you to interact with our forums members about all things World Cup during the duration of the World Cup! In return Rugby League Planet will pay $40 AUD per article.

So if you are already planning on going to the World Cup and have some experience writing articles and covering sports in general and would like to earn some extra cash we want to hear from you.

If you are interested please drop us an email at webmaster@rugbyleagueplanet.com along with how you think you can bring the World Cup to life on Rugby League Planet. Also please include a run down on any experience you might have and which games you think you will be able to cover.
