Saracens and Harlequins meet at Wembley Stadium
Doncaster based ultra-endurance athlete, Simon Wheatcroft is on his journey to become the first blind man to run a 4 Deserts Race solo across the Namibian Desert. He’s the winner of IG’s Achieve the Extraordinary Competition after winning the public vote earlier this year. The competition marked IG’s third year as partner of Harlequins RFC, the aim was to ask […]
A perfect illustration of that saying – A Game of 2 Halves!
I met Will Skinner in January 2014 – A very interesting man!
Saracens lose their unbeaten run against fellow Londoners Harlequins on a day of local derbies
A 10 Try wonder at the Home of England Rugby!
Having been to the U18’s Finals day at Allianz Park in February I was happy to have the chance to go and watch some of the stars of the future. I will confess to having a vested interest in this particular fixture; my nephew Alex plays for Quins. The game took place at London Irish’s new training facility Hazelwood; having […]
With Saracens playing Newcastle it was time to make a journey to The Stoop to watch Harlequins. One of the joys of travelling to Twickenham are my lovely Quins friends Henry and Sue, a lunch at Patisserie Valerie was arranged! This was my second Saturday in a row – it seems very strange to be known in Twickenham when I […]
On the basis that I’m falling behind with my 365 Sporting Days I really am going to make this event more of a Phlog than a blog. Although as this was an evening event so the photos may get a bit dodgy as you can see things progress. I was lucky enough to have media access for the 7’s at […]
This Event is somewhat unusual, amongst the many press releases I get the lovely people at Premiership Rugby I had a media invitation from Harlequins. A chance to go and watch them train at the Surrey Sports Park and be amongst the first to lay eyes on the new shirt. I had a free day so hastily fired off a […]
An unusual event, but sports related so valid to be here I feel. A recalling of the event and a bit of a article all rolled into one. I’ve said before but I will say it again – Premiership Rugby as an organisation are very inclusive. They recognise, ‘people like me’ – those of us who write about the game […]
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 […]
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 […]
With the 6 Nations and my gallivanting done it was time to return to Premiership Rugby and Saracens. In what has become a tradition they faced their opponents Harlequins at Wembley. Having changed my mind all week about how I was going to travel car was the option when it came to the day. In a bid to improve the […]
