Edinburgh Rugby v Gloucester – Event 47

Oh how I’d like to expand that title!  Edinburgh Rugby v Gloucester – The Challenge Cup Final!  The first time a Scottish team had been in a European Final and a chance for Gloucester to have some joy at the end of an average season. I will warn that this is going to be more of a match report than […]

Wasps v Exeter Chiefs – Event 46

Having been to Milton Keynes my next date was in Coventry at the Ricoh Arena – home of Wasps Rugby.  I was lucky enough to be stay the night with my lovely Saracens friends Steve and Clare. We had a great evening – I’m not too sure who was more shocked that I drank wine, me or them! And I […]

Northampton Saints v Saracens – Event 45

After an afternoon in London shocking my camera by taking photos with no element of sport involved whatsoever Saturday arrived and that meant rugby! Northampton Saints in conjunction with the RFU I imagine decided to play their home fixture against Saracens at Stadium MK in Milton Keynes. The game itself has become something of a draw as far as fans […]

Essex CC v Kent CC – Event 43

The joys of living in Chelmsford means I can go and watch Essex play cricket for a couple of hours at a time if that’s all I have available in my day. With plans to watch London Skolars in the afternoon I decided on watching the first session of the cricket. It’s lovely having a 10 minute trip to sport, […]

Kings of The North – Event 41

A Friday meeting I needed to attend at work means I was able to accept an invitation to go to Leicester for an unusual and exciting event. I had a leisurely morning – with a healthy breakfast (check my ‘lunch’ later!) before setting off for Leicester giving myself a good 3 hours to get there.     The journey was […]

Saracens v Leicester Tigers – Event 40

After the glamour of Paris it was back to Premiership Rugby and back to Allianz Park.  The season seems to be flying by and this was a key game. I’ve been ‘on holiday’ for the Easter period – I honestly have no idea how I manage to get myself organised, dressed and out the door for work in the mornings. […]

London Broncos v Batley Bulldogs – Event 39

Easter Monday means rugby league, if fixtures fall right, and this year they most certainly did!  Batley Bulldogs travelled to play London Broncos. Batley have a long and rich history, coming into being in the 1880’s;  they were one of the original 20 clubs to break away at the famous meeting in the George Hotel in Huddersfield. They play their […]

Racing Metro 92 v Saracens – Event 38

A tough European Champions Cup draw for Saracens was a heaven sent opportunity for me to combine 3 of my favourite things – My lovely daughter Alexandra, Paris and Rugby!  Perfect! When the dates were announced the whole Easter weekend was given as a possibility so I booked Eurostar to travel on Good Friday, returning on the Monday.  I did […]

London Skolars v Hemel Stags – Event 37

Having thoroughly enjoyed 2 days of cricket Good Friday brought a local derby between London Skolars and Hemel Stags. The weather was back to yuk having had a touch of Spring; Skolars are my closest rugby team round about 45 minutes away with a good run. That consist of the A12,M25, A406 with a smidgeon of A10 added in at […]

Essex CC v Surrey Day 3 – Event 36

My ideal week would involve watching all 3 days of the Essex v Surrey friendly, however a commitment to a photo shoot if you please, meant I had to miss Day 2.   Rather than sit and watch cricket in the horrendous wind I spent the day at Frinton and Walton dressed for summer having my photo taken along with […]

Essex CC v Surrey CC – Event 35

The cricket season is nearly here!!  If I’m honest this blog grew from my love of the game, I was literally brought up at the side of a cricket pitch, some of my earliest memories involve my Dad in whites playing the game on what always seemed to be bright summer days.     That of course won’t have been […]

Saracens v Harlequins – Event 34

With the 6 Nations and my gallivanting done it was time to return to Premiership Rugby and Saracens.  In what has become a tradition they faced their opponents Harlequins at Wembley. Having changed my mind all week about how I was going to travel car was the option when it came to the day.  In a bid to improve the […]

Scotland v Ireland – Event 33

A trip to Scotland for the final round of the Six Nations saw me finish as I’d started with My good friend Monica accompanying me.  I’d bought 2 tickets when planning my 5 games in 5 countries anticipating that she wouldn’t be able to resist a weekend in Bonnie Scotland. We both have family across the border which is more […]
