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 […]

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 […]
