Where to start after the fact? On May 13th 2017 Saracens joined good company in retaining the Champions Cup, they did so in one of the best finals for a few years. I’ve been a Saracens season ticket holder since 2009, and no, I’m not the only one as so many other Premiership rugby fans like to throw out there. […]
Halfway through writing this I’ve come back to the start, it’s going to be more an account of a great weekend than a match report – you have been warned! As my Saracens friends have found out I’m not a fan of flying, the only times of late I’ve been on a plane have been to watch Saracens play Munster […]
Saracens take on Toulon in the Champions Cup
More Phlog than Blog A 4 match Flexi Ticket for Wasps for £50, including Champions Cup rugby and a match against Saracens? It was rude not to!

The joys of having a brother who doesn’t live too far from Twickenham meant I had an easy journey back the morning after the Challenge Cup Final. I’d bought my Golden Ticket as soon as they were on offer, to ensure I could be at the final no matter what. As it turned out I was lucky to be given […]
Now then – the title here may well be a tad misleading! I didn’t make my 2nd trip to France in so many weeks, with other commitments it was a trip too far. So I did the next best thing and travelled to Allianz Park to watch the game with fellow fans, is that worthy of writing about? Do you […]
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 […]
