Saracens v Harlequins

A grotty Sunday afternoon saw Harlequins visiting the Stonex Stadium, Saracens had an away Premiership win under their belt when they beat the current Champions at the Stoop and a home win in the Premiership Rugby Cup, could they make it a trio? I was happy to see just the one captain this week, with that being Mako Vunipola. Jack […]

Saracens v Bath Rugby

Bath made their journey up to North London on the back of a good win against the Champions, Harlequins. Saracens had been defeated by both Wasps and Gloucester in their previous 2 Premiership games. Both teams were missing international players, but 2 of Saracens’ Scots, in the ever improving Andy Christie and 100 Saracens cap man Sean Maitland had returned […]

Wasps v Saracens

The rugby calendar ticked back to a Premiership Rugby programme, the week before this years’ Six Nations starts. Saturday had brought a win for Bath against Champions Harlequins, hopefully the season is looking up for the famous West Country club. London Irish beat Exeter at home moving them up to 6th in the table and Gloucester had a good away […]

Saracens v Worcester Warriors

Boxing Day Rugby! Having checked again and again the match was on, Unlike poor Newcastle and Sale fans whose match was ‘covid cancelled’ as Saracens European match against Pau had been. Annoyingly just days after Saracens made their statement around covid cases all games against French opposition where travelling into France was needed were postponed. Leinster, in spite of being […]

Exeter Chiefs 2

Exeter Chiefs v Saracens

A weekend away re-arranged twice due to Lockdown saw a great weekend in and around Birmingham for me. I most probably wouldn’t have driven all the way to Exeter and usually wouldn’t be keen to watch a tight loss. But having read some of the comments around the game I wanted to add my opinions too. The photos are courtesy […]

Harlequins v Saracens

A visit to The Stoop always gives me the chance to spend time with my Quins supporting friends Sue & Henry, we met for a Costa and were all quite cagey about how we thought the game might go. Quins, the Champions and second in the league playing Saracens sitting at third. My seat in the North Stand had me […]

Saracens v Wasps Rugby

Watching Premiership Rugby really is so much better when people sit in their seats, for one, and when ref link works, for two. I managed not to miss anything vital this week, and there was a lot of good stuff to see. Poor Wasps travelled to the Stonex Stadium with 15 of their players on the injury list, and one […]

Newcastle Falcons 0

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 […]
