Saracens v Bath Rugby

Strange things happen to you when you have grandchildren, this is my oldest grandson’s 6th birthday weekend and today I went to his birthday party rather than the match at the Stonex Stadium, an afternoon with all 5r of my grandchildren taking priority over Saracens? Whatever next?? Thanks to PRTV I can sit in the comfort of my living room […]

Newcastle Falcons v Saracens

A trip to Scotland that coincided with Saracens playing at Kingston Park meant it was rude not to make my first visit to the home of the Newcastle Falcons. I treated myself to hospitality, great value at £90 for a roast dinner with dessert and a great seat! I had lovely company for the duration too, which was a nice […]

Scotland Rugby League v England Knights

With the World Cup proper starting next weekend this weekend has all been about warm up matches and a chance to gel as a team, particularly for a team like Scotland, where a number of the players only met each other on Wednesday. Thursday was a training session and Friday the Captain’s run and shirt presentation. A mention for that […]

Saracens v Leicester Tigers – Sweet Revenge

I first started watching Saracens in 2009 and I’ve seen some wonderful games, with several trophies won and lost. The first Premiership Final I attended to watch Saracens was in 2010 when Dan Hipkiss, of Leicester Tigers scored a try in the final moments to brutal Saracens hearts. Things flipped in the following year and a 9 minute defensive effort […]

Essex v Lancashire – a crazy Day 1!

This is going to be more about the photos than words – Before that I’m going back to the first match of the season at the County Ground in Chelmsford. Kent were the visitors between April 7th and 10th. Essex batted for 159.5 overs and scored 514 runs, 3 batters, Nick Browne, Alastair Cook and Matt Critchley started their season […]

Harlequins v Saracens

Match 1 of the new Premiership season for Saracens, after they had a bye in week 1, saw them heading to the Stoop, a tough first fixture for Lock Hugh Tizard who’d moved to North London at the end of the season from Harlequins. I can only imagine his mixed emotions! It took me a 2 hour drive to get […]

The County Championship Round 15

It’s September 15th and we’re at the business end of the season – Every team has played 12 games and the top spots and relegation spots being close to being decided. The minor counties must look on with interest at a team, in Leicestershire, which hasn’t won a single game in 2022. Mind you Gloucestershire are in the same boat! […]

England v South Africa at the Oval

I’ve fallen out of love with watching England over the last few years; from watching every day of every test in 2018 I gave it a miss in 2019 and of course Covid then came along. In spite off loving watching cricket at Lord’s I doubt I’ll watch England there again the prices are just 2 high! I chose 2 […]

The County Championship Round 14

It feels like a long time since I was watching my team, Essex play. August 17th and Yorkshire with one of the biggest downpours of rain I’ve experienced! Happily Essex had batted first and were able to bowl enough innings to see a result in their favour; that was of course a white ball game, in the Royal London Cup. […]

The County Championship Round 12

With the rugby union season fast approaching my season ticket for my team, Saracens in bought at a cost of £755 for 16 home fixtures, I thought I’d have a look at prices for County Cricket ,memberships in 2022. I haven’t been able to find all Division 1 prices or show direct comparisons, but I think you’ll agree this game […]
