Harlequins v Saracens

I’m going to try to keep this to the rugby! Well do my best anyway, although I’m not loving the pre-amble on BT Sport, I was at the game but I’m watching back if I can bear to. My own day started with lunch with two of my Harlequins friends, Sue and Henry, some good chat and a Costa, what’s […]

Some Salary Cap Shizzle

I started writing about rugby for the site In The Loose, before setting up my own thing. I’ve always considered myself to be fair, impartial and unbiased, in fact I try my hardest to think about the game first then my team. Being a Saracens fan has tested that resolve since the news of their Salary Cap transgressions broke in […]

Saracens v Worcester Warriors – and a ray of hope!

It’s been a few days since Saracens played Worcester, I’ve been feeling rather disheartened since then, with the ongoing feeding frenzy from some media outlets after an interview by returning Chief Executive Edward Griffiths was twisted to suit whatever their agendas may be. One ‘journalist’ Laura Lambert, now seems to be going by her maiden name of Laura Scott, and […]

Essex CCC – Champions 2019

With 2020 here, this is a good time to look back on a great summer for Essex, one that ended with them lifting the County Champions Trophy! This is my 2019 Wickets, Shots and Joy post! The season started with a loss at Hampshire for Essex, with Hampshire scoring a huge 525 for 8, I wasn’t there to see one […]

Round 4 of the Champions Cup saw Munster arriving at Allianz Park; my first experience of Munster was at the impressive Thomond Park in Limerick in December 2012, followed up by their visit to the gloomy Vicarage Road.

Chelsea Women v Man City Women

With Saracens playing in Limerick I had some time to try other things over the weekend, my Saturday started in a quite horrible way with a final visit to the vet for my little dog, Shirley. I spent the afternoon with my grandsons for some much needed joy. I stuck to my plans for the Sunday however and drove to […]

A Rugby Player in the Making – Ben Lee

My game day Saturday morning started early at Allianz Park, I arrived at 10:30 to meet up with staunch Saracens fans Debs and James Lee and their 15 year old son, Ben. My aim was to try to understand some of what it takes to get noticed as a young rugby player, what puts an individual in front of the […]

What does a Premiership Rugby Squad look like?

And so the Salary Cap debacle rumbles on; the 35 points deduction and £5.36 million fine have been accepted by Saracens. That’s left the club at rock bottom in the Premiership table, with a huge uphill climb to avoid relegation. News has come today of the Salary Cap Manager carrying out a mid-season review of Saracens’ books for the current […]
