Saracens v Newcastle Falcons

Saracens fans had last attended a Premiership Rugby match at what was Allianz Park on March 7th 2020 as the home team beat Leicester Tigers. A season out of the top league saw just a few fans able to attend a couple of Championship games, this was the first time back after an Annus Horribilis. The weather was a delight, […]

Leicester Tigers v Saracens

After watching Saracens Storm running in 11 tries against Ealing Trailfinders at the Stonex Stadum I’d been a bit spoilt rugby wise; my mid-week entertainment involved a round ball at the London Stadium as West Ham played Rapid Vienna; it struck me that for all of the superior attitude so many rugby union fans show towards football and its fans, […]

Bristol Bears v Saracens – We’re Back!

Friday September 17th heralded the start of the new Premiership Rugby season and Saracens first game back after their exile due to Salary Cap breaches; I’ve written all about that so I’m not going to comment further. As I drove the 4 hours it took me to reach Bristol I wasn’t sure what to expect either on or off the […]

Disciplinary Matters – Does Sir need to brush up?

The Premiership Clubs have just had a 2 week break from playing; which means the officials have had the same time to have a bit of chat and a brush up of the laws and their interpretation. Since the Barbarians debacle, involving 13 players, there have been 6 appearances before the Disciplinary Committee for those playing the mens’ game, 2 […]

Saracens v Leicester Tigers

Headlines have been in abundance as per usual when it comes to Saracens, the Daily Mail, that well known rugby paper, told us there was to be an exodus of players. The only absolute news from the club at that point had been to confirm that Liam Williams is heading back to Wales after his 3 years at the club. […]

Harlequins v Saracens

I’m going to try to keep this to the rugby! Well do my best anyway, although I’m not loving the pre-amble on BT Sport, I was at the game but I’m watching back if I can bear to. My own day started with lunch with two of my Harlequins friends, Sue and Henry, some good chat and a Costa, what’s […]

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. News has come today of the Salary Cap Manager carrying out a mid-season review of Saracens’ books for the current […]

Saracens v Gloucester – The Premiership Semi-Final

It’s been a funny Premiership season, with the top 2 pretty much cemented early on. The relegation spot wasn’t confirmed until virtually the end of the season, with Newcastle being the team to go down. Gloucester had come through as strong contenders for 3rd place, beating Saracens at Kingsholm during the 6 Nations window, they were deserved winners that Friday […]

Saracens v Exeter Chiefs

It’s been a funny season so far as a Saracens fan, I haven’t wanted to write about many games when I’ve got home. The Champions Cup semi-final was a huge exception and this match is another! With both teams secure in 1st and 2nd place and a Champions Cup Final ahead for Saracens next week this was a match up […]

Six Nations Saracens

Watching Saracens during the 6 Nations has been interesting in recent years. With only one 6 Nations game in my diary this year I’ve been to more club games than I usually make during this spell. The results during this time have been – 8th Feb – Worcester 22 Saracens 38 16th Feb – Saracens 33 Leicester Tigers 10 22nd […]

Leicester Tigers v Saracens

A Twitter competition saw 3 friends and I enjoying this match in some style.  Total Motion Leicester Tigers official vehicle suppliers sent out a tweet asking for the 2 seasons the 2 teams played each other in the Premiership Final.  Both games were etched in my memory having been devastated at one and elated at the second.  The prize was […]

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 v Bath – Rugby’s Back!

And so that’s the cricket season finished!  Wow I’ve had an amazing summer, I’ve seen some amazing individual performances , there’ll be plenty of TV cricket over the winter, but I prefer my sport live,  Rugby is my sport of choice over the winter months, Saracens are my team of choice, with the odd alternative team thrown in. Oh and […]

Saracens v Gloucester

Mid May sees me getting into the swing of the cricket season, but there’s just a bit of the rugby union season left and the last regular season game saw Saracens play Gloucester at Allianz Park. That’s a game I wouldn’t want to miss, even though Essex were playing Yorkshire in Chelmsford, my daughter Alexandra was visiting from Paris and […]

Saracens v Bath

The Six Nations tournament saw both of these teams lose key players,  that period was a mixed time for both Bath and Saracens with the Premiership results panning out as follows. Bath Bath 32    Northampton Saints 30    Win Bath 22    Harlequins 12                     Win Bristol 12 Bath 11 […]
