Saracens v Bristol Bears

Saracens were back at The Stonex Stadium and back to a Premiership Rugby game, without their England Internationals, but with a few of their internationals from other Home Nations in the match day squad. The head coaches of Wales and Scotland must be biting their nails with several of their picks playing in the Premiership this weekend. Ralph Adams-Hale and […]

Gloucester Rugby 0

Gloucester v Saracens

I made the decision not to travel to one of my favourite away grounds after a 4 hour drive in the snow, a bit random, but a lucky decision as I went down with the Nast couch doing the rounds after Christmas. My last visit to Kingsholm saw a men against boys game of rugby with Saracens roundly beaten. This […]

Saracens v Exeter Chiefs

I had planned to write up every Saracens match this season, but I just couldn’t bring myself to re-watch their match against London Irish, they got exactly what they deserved from that match, NOTHING. Irish were deserved winners as Saracens failed to score with a 2 man advantage at one point. The only good news to have come post match […]

Northampton Saints 2

Saracens v Northampton Saints

Thus has been some sporting weekend – my viewing started at 6:30 – AM – on Saturday morning as England’s Red Roses took on the New Zealand’s Black Ferns in the World Cup Final. England went into the game on the back of 30 straight wins, but a red card in the 18th minute made the task too much of […]

Saracens v Sale Sharks

As a rugby league fan it’s always interesting to watch the involvement of former legends of that game plying their trade and coaches in this ‘other code’. Mike Forshaw, who I’ve been lucky enough to interview, and Paul Deacon played most of their rugby, together at Bradford Bulls and Bothe represented Great Britain and England. I do believe the game […]

Exeter Chiefs v Saracens

Rugby League World Cup tickets booked in 202 took me to Hull this weekend, so I listened to this match courtesy of BBC Devon Radio. I tried my best not to find the commentary biased, and they did send some praise the way of Saracens but blatantly disagreed with a couple of scrum penalties awarded against Chiefs, in spite of […]

Newcastle Falcons v Saracens

A trip to Scotland that coincided with Saracens playing at Kingston Park meant it was rude not to make my first visit to the home of the Newcastle Falcons. I treated myself to hospitality, great value at £90 for a roast dinner with dessert and a great seat! I had lovely company for the duration too, which was a nice […]

Saracens v Leicester Tigers – Sweet Revenge

I first started watching Saracens in 2009 and I’ve seen some wonderful games, with several trophies won and lost. The first Premiership Final I attended to watch Saracens was in 2010 when Dan Hipkiss, of Leicester Tigers scored a try in the final moments to brutal Saracens hearts. Things flipped in the following year and a 9 minute defensive effort […]

Harlequins 0

Harlequins v Saracens

Match 1 of the new Premiership season for Saracens, after they had a bye in week 1, saw them heading to the Stoop, a tough first fixture for Lock Hugh Tizard who’d moved to North London at the end of the season from Harlequins. I can only imagine his mixed emotions! It took me a 2 hour drive to get […]

Gloucester Rugby v Saracens

It’s not often I go to watch my team and come away glad they weren’t nilled! This was a celebration of a good season for Gloucester at their famous Kingsholm Stadium. Gloucester had a torrid season in 2020-2021 they only won 7 of the 22 matches played, I’m in one of their fan groups on Facebook, Gloucester Rugby is My […]

Harlequins 4

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 […]

Bath Rugby 2

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 […]
