London Broncos v Workington Town – Event 28

After watching one of my rugby league teams lose by just the 82 points I was very much looking forward to seeing London Broncos get a win.  Well, I was hoping that would be the case anyway!   Having had a taste of Spring on the Saturday, Sunday morning was glorious in Chelmsford!  I dressed accordingly and took Shirley (yes […]

London Skolars v Swinton Lions – Event 27

Another break in the 6 Nations schedule meant a break in my gallivanting but not a break in watching sport!  With London Skolars playing Swinton Lions at The New River Stadium in the Challenge Cup a trip to my nearest team was a plan! Now rugby league is these days meant to be a summer game, of course with the […]

Ireland v England – Event 25

Having spent the morning at the side of a muddy pitch in Trinity College Dublin,  watching what really was a different form of rugby I headed for some warmth before heading off to Landsdowne Road to collect my ticket for the Ireland v England game. As I drank a cuppa the snow came pouring down – or as someone has […]

Sale Sharks v Saracens – Event 19

What chance that Sales Sharks would be playing at home on the weekend of the World Club Series – well I suppose a 1 in 2.  A much slimmer chance that their opponents would be Saracens!  I couldn’t believe my luck when I saw that was the case, so promptly booked my ticket. Having had a decent nights sleep at […]

London Broncos in Training – Event 17

An opportunity to interview London Broncos Head Coach Joey Grima also gave me the chance to watch the team train.  Now that was something I just had to do – I’ve supported this team since the advent of Superleague in 1996. I found myself heading to Bushey – I knew that was in the general direction of Watford but of […]

Saracens v Bath Rugby – Event 15

In spite of it being Round 2 of the Six Nations Tournament, Premiership Rugby still continues.  That seems slightly crazy, especially for those teams with lots of players featuring for their country. And so 2 such teams, Saracens and Bath Rugby faced each other at Allianz Park.  My journey was a different one to my usual M25 madness.  I was […]

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 […]
