Mr Curtis, chief sub-editor and chief rugby union editor at, hosted the workshop with his colleague Mr Buckingham, deputy editor and football editor, at Leeds Trinity University this morning.

Mr Buckingham said: “It will give students a really good incentive to produce good quality work if it will actually appear on website.

“From there, you never know what it might lead to.”
