London Skolars v Barrow Raiders – Event 58

Having enjoyed T20 cricket at the Oval then Premiership rugby at the Kassam Stadium Sunday brought me rugby league in the shape of London Skolars v Barrow Raiders. Breakfast with my Saracens friends in Oxford came first – we went to Frankie & Benny’s who did make a bot of a mess of breakfast, but impressively recognised that fact and […]

London Welsh v Saracens – Event 57

Rugby Union had to feature in one of my multi-sport weekends, cricket on Friday followed by Saracens at London Welsh on Saturday, with London Skolars to finish of my weekend. For the final game of the weekend a crowd of us had decided to make an outing of it and had booked into the hotel next to the Kassam Stadium. […]

Surrey v Glamorgan T20 Blast – Event 56

The first T20 Blast games of the ‘summer’ gave me a chance to make my first visit to the Oval as a Surrey member. My home county Essex were playing Hampshire, a trip too far for 40 overs of cricket. Having discovered last year that a Surrey and England membership means you are guaranteed a chance to buy your seat […]

Saracens v Exeter Chiefs – Event 54

My 3rd game of the weekend was at Allianz Park – Saracens v Exeter Chiefs.  A leisurely breakfast in bed and I set off.  It turned out my hotel was very well placed for Allianz Park, the journey took me around 35 minutes. I had to be at the ground for 1ish to meet a group from the school I […]

Wasps v Leicester Tigers – Event 53

After a great game of rugby at the Stoop and a good nights sleep in my Premierinn room, it seems people really do take the whole shhhhh be quiet thing seriously which is great, it was time to head off to Coventry. I’d stayed in High Wycombe, which wasn’t really by design, but it meant I’d be replicating the journey […]

Harlequins v Bath Rugby – Event 52

A fixture change for Saracens saw me contemplating no sport until the Sunday, that didn’t feel like a plan so I checked out the Premiership Rugby fixture list. The penultimate weekend of the season proper had a list of mouthwatering fixtures, it felt rude not to watch a game a day over the weekend! And so a ticket was bought […]

Chelmsford City Racing – Event 51

Although the majority of my ‘Events’ will involve rugby of both codes and cricket I’m going to try and get a few other sports in there. From what I can remember an advert in a local free paper for the Chelmsford City Racecourse interested me. The course at Great Leighs just outside of Chelmsford, and 15 minutes maximum from where […]

Essex v Gloucestershire – Event 50

And so I reach Event 50 on the 4th May not bad going!  I wonder sometimes how I fit work in (hope my boss isn’t reading!) Having had a rugby packed weekend Bank Holiday Monday brought me a much calmer day in the form of Day 2 of the LV County Championship game between Essex and Gloucestershire. As I’ve mentioned […]

Under 15 Academy 12 A-Side competition – Event 49

Having experienced the heady heights of the Press Box at The Champions Cup Final at Twickenham, my next ‘Event’ was of a different kind, but just as important. I had planned to do my watching Essex Cricket in the morning and London Skolars in the afternoon thing again, but a message from Charles Beer a Twitter friend to tell me […]

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 […]
