County Championship Round 7 – 2023

An opportunity to watch county cricket at one of my favourite international grounds was too good not to take, cue 3 days at Trent Bridge! It seems crazy that it’s only Mid-May and we’re into the 6th match fro most teams, Round 7 on my watch as not all teams have played each time, it’s all very confusing! There were […]

County Championship Round 6 – 2023

Round 6 saw some semi-decent weather, but there were still plenty of drawn games, I was due to go to Edgbaston in Day 1 but drove through torrential rain so didn’t see my team bowled out for cheap. Day 1 was in general a good day to bowl! That was a some on the weather. With the Ashes now only […]

County Championship Round 5 – 2023

The second of three bank holidays in May saw the round of county cricket starting on the Thursday, when the sensible option would have been to start on the Friday and continue into the Monday. The same thing happened on Bank Holiday 1 and we have no County Cricket over weekend 3. That, in my mind is a bit daft! […]

County Championship Round 4 – 2023

What a difference decent weather makes! This week saw just 2 games in Division 1 and 3 in Division 2, with 3 of those 5 games being won on Day 3 of the 4 days. As I’m starting to write this at 4:30 on Day 4, the match in Bristol is rain affected. I considered last week that the teams […]

Saracens v London Irish

The final home game of the Premiership season, Semi-Final not withstanding, saw London Irish as Saracens opposition. Saracens had lost 4 games this season and London Irish were one of the winning teams. They had Adam Coleman red carded after 15 minutes then Saracens lost Ben Earl to a red card on 29 minutes. Earl’s red card was overturned by […]

County Championship Round 3 – 2023

A stupidly busy Thursday, with a play in London and a show in Southend means I’m coming to this at the end of Day 2 – Friday was a busy one too! Most games were rain affected on Day 1 and indeed some on Day 2 as well. THE performer of the round did his thing on Day 1 however! […]

County Championship Round 2 – 2023

A much needed visit to Scotland to visit family means I’m watching this round from afar, and in fact on a train as I start to write. Disappointed to be missing Jimmy v Sir Alastair but hoping for an Essex win, any photos will be Essex focused without the ability to take more. The weather hasn’t been as kind for […]

County Championship 2023 – Round 1

After what felt like a long Winter the new County Cricket season is finally here! Coinciding with the Easter holidays the timing along with the weather from Day 2 at least, around the country was pretty good. I sat in 4 layers at the first game last season and was still cold. Sun Cream wouldn’t have gone amiss at Lord’s […]

Saracens v Ospreys – Champions Cup

I’m not too sure how I feel about the fact that there was a power cut at my house today; so no replay to watch! Annoying really! And no easy catch up option as it was on BT Sport. Oh well, from a few highlights and memory it will be! As I was walking the ground I overheard 2 women […]

France v Wales – Super Saturday!

My daughter’s lived in Paris for over 10 years now and somehow there’s often a rugby match on when I visit. The first year she was there I went to the Top 14 Final on my own, that was 2013 and I saw Castres beat Toulon, In 2014 I went on my own again to watch England play, Gael Fickou […]

Saracens v Harlequins – The Showdown

My live sports watching started in the late 70’s at White Hart Lane where I stood on the Shelf, the new Spurs Stadium is pretty much on the same site, but is now probably the best stadium in this country if not the whole of Europe. My seat was close to the action and virtually on the half way line, […]

Premiership Women's Rugby 0

Saracens Women v Sale Sharks Women

It’s been a while since I’ve watched Saracens Women live and wow, what a difference having the World Cup players back makes! Early season home results had a couple of disappointments as well as some high scores! That all added up to 3rd place for Saracens, with Exeter Chiefs topping the table and Gloucester Hartpury sitting in second. Saracens play DMP Sharks away on March 11th, the competition then takes a break for the 6 Nations; before a hugely important game for Saracens on May 13th when they play Exeter at home. There are 10 teams in the league and no European games at present, the Top 4 teams will play off on June 10th/11th with the Final to be […]
