Saracens – What a difference a week makes!

A week can bring big changes, last week we seemed to be in Spring at Allianz Park, this weekend we appeared to be back in Winter! That might be down to the cricket season starting, or just the vagaries of good old English weather. Last week Saracens played Glasgow Warriors in the Quarter Final of the Champions Cup. Something special […]

Saracens v Sale Sharks

One of the joys/downsides of having so many international players in the squad is the way the starting XV is stretched during both the autumn Internationals and 6 Nations.  The Premiership Rugby Cup softens some of the blow, but there are two Premiership Rugby games during this AI spell.  The first for Saracens being Sale Sharks, the second Leicester Tigers […]

Saracens in October

My head still seems to be in the cricket world in spite of it being the rugby season, hence the delay on writing.  I missed two of Saracens matches in October, the Harlequins match because I was away doing something that’d been planned for 10 months.  I saw most of the second half as Saracens got themselves a hard fought […]

A Saracens Weekend!

The start of the cricket season meant I was due to travel to Leeds to watch Essex play at Headingley, the atrocious weather meant I cancelled my plans leaving me free to spend the weekend at Allianz Park. SARACENS STORM V BATH UNITED  I write this as a time when there’s a good deal of angst amongst Saracens supporters after […]

Saracens v Harlequins

Autumn International time is nearly here which means club rugby switches over to the Anglo Welsh Cup, before I focus on the match I went to here’s an explanation of the competition from the Premiership Rugby site – Each team in pool 1 shall play each team in pool 4 once and each team in pool 2 shall play each […]

Saracens v Bristol

With a busy week full of cricket this is going to be more about the photos than the words. The final home game of the ‘standard’ season saw Bristol visiting Allianz Park, they’d battled for several years to get into the Premiership, finishing top of the league only to fail in the play offs.  That was put right in the […]

Saracens behind the Scenes – Roanne Crouse

I’d met Roanne several times with his Saracens Sports Foundation hat on and found him to be a friendly and charismatic man, it was no surprise therefore to find him in hospitality mode when I was lucky enough to be in the 100 Club pre-match.  A Saracens Supporters Association evening where he was the host left me wanting to find […]
