Dai Sport is a fresh breath of Welsh sport with a fiery attitude.
We cover the whole range of Welsh sports with news, analysis and heated opinion. Nothing is off bounds, whether it’s on the field, the court, the race track, in the ring, or on the ice. Big or small, Dai watches all.
Our columnists can be passionate and persuasive, or calm and critical. But you won’t find them blowing smoke where there’s no fire. We don’t do clickbait, nasty pop-ups, or irritating auto-play videos.
Our writers and photographers are a broad mix of experienced journalists, young talent, budding bloggers, or just spreaders of the word about what’s going on in their sport. If you’d like to contribute to Dai Sport – on any sport, at any level – we’d love to hear from you.
