Saracens v London Irish

The final home game of the Premiership season, Semi-Final not withstanding, saw London Irish as Saracens opposition. Saracens had lost 4 games this season and London Irish were one of the winning teams. They had Adam Coleman red carded after 15 minutes then Saracens lost Ben Earl to a red card on 29 minutes. Earl’s red card was overturned by […]

Saracens v London Irish

No photos for this one, I messed my camera settings up and those I took are really poor 😦 London Irish had been involved in 2 draws before their visit to the Stonex Stadium, the first of those being against Sale, when they trailed by 17 points at half-time, Sale had 31 at that point and failed to score a […]

What does a Premiership Rugby Squad look like?

And so the Salary Cap debacle rumbles on; the 35 points deduction and £5.36 million fine have been accepted by Saracens. That’s left the club at rock bottom in the Premiership table, with a huge uphill climb to avoid relegation.

London Irish v Wasps – Event 162

Under 15 Academy 12 A-Side competition – Event 49

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 […]

Saracens v London Irish – Event 2

It will soon become plain that I am in fact a season ticket holder at Allianz Park – home of Saracens.  Some very clever marketing saw that happen 6 years ago now; £10 to watch Saracens play Northampton Saints at Wembley was too good to miss for a sports fan.  Then it was rude not to but a season ticket […]
