England v Italy – Event 14

Having succumbed to my cough/cold and kept my germ indoors for the week, by Friday I was to say the very least bored to tears!  Along with work I cancelled everything I had planned and hoped I’d feel human by Saturday morning. In a bid to cut down the time I spent outdoors I decided to drive to Westfield in […]

France v Scotland – Event 13

When I started to look at my plans for 2015 and in particular the 6 Nations I got online to see what was achievable as far as tickets were concerned. Tickets for Twickenham are always hard to come by, so I got an idea into my head to watch 5 games in 5 countries instead! I’m not going to give […]

Saracens v Blue Bulls – Event 12

With Premiership Rugby taking  rest and the LV Cup making a return a trip to Saracens still beckoned as they welcomed Super Rugby team The Blue Bulls.  I can feel myself going into match report mode but that’ll come later – so back into blog mode! My game day morning was spent waiting for carpet fitters then moving furniture around […]

London Skolars v London Broncos – Event 11

The rugby league season is moving closer and so on a chilly Sunday in January a friendly between 2 of the teams I support – London Skolars and London Broncos beckoned. Skolars spent the bulk of last season playing in Enfield while a new 4G pitch was being laid.  The ‘friendly’, if there is such a thing in rugby league […]

Wasps v Leinster – Event 10

With Saracens playing in France I was in need of a rugby union fixture, so I booked myself a ticket to watch Wasps take on Leinster in the European Rugby Champions Cup game.  I had no idea when I picked the game that it’d be the decider for the group!  Result! Being a bit of a bimbo at times I […]

Harlequins v Wasps – Event 9

As I arrived at the Stoop last week I thought to myself – why aren’t I coming here again next week?  Saracens were playing Munster at 1pm – Quins v Wasps started at 7:45pm that was a huge gap between the 2 games – it seemed a plan to do both!  And so a ticket was bought before I left […]

Saracens v Munster Rugby – Event 8

After a chilly afternoon watching my 1st live rugby league game of 2015 next up was a somewhat bigger affair with rather more at stake.  The relabelled European Rugby Champions Cup, strangely sponsored by no other than Heineken would take me to 2 games in a day. The 1st was Saracens v Munster Rugby kicking off at 1pm, a nice […]

Harlequins v Leicester Tigers – Event 6

A pleasantly good nights’ sleep in Gloucester saw me awake at stupid o’clock for a Saturday – but gave me time to write about my disappointing experience the night before.  I need to make a note to self at this point – Buy breakfast the day before when staying in a hotel!  Note taken on board. Having only had a […]

Gloucester Rugby v Saracens – Event 5

For some very strange reason a week ago I wasn’t going to the Gloucester v Saracens game; I sat with friends after the Saracens Storm game and listened to their plans, this got me thinking – why on earth am I not going??  Needless to say my ticket for the game was bought by 8am the next morning! The joys […]

Leicester Tigers v Bath Rugby – Event 3

An evening in a Hotel, in this case the Holiday Inn Express, Filbert Way, Leicester, the one opposite the King Power Stadium, tends to mean dinner alone.  The hotel don’t have a restaurant so I wandered round to the Steak & Grill Restaurant attached.  And so, the lady eating alone in the evening scenario occurred, somehow I often feel as […]

Saracens v London Irish – Event 2

It will soon become plain that I am in fact a season ticket holder at Allianz Park – home of Saracens.  Some very clever marketing saw that happen 6 years ago now; £10 to watch Saracens play Northampton Saints at Wembley was too good to miss for a sports fan.  Then it was rude not to but a season ticket […]

365 Sporting Days – An Epic 2015 Ahead!

I thought that 2014 was pretty amazing for me when it came to live sport; I watched England Rugby Union play in Paris for the first time,  then watched Wales play France on a Friday evening, before I drove to Twickenham to watch England play Ireland. Rugby Union isn’t my only passion I had an eleven day spell in the […]
