Harlequins v Bath Rugby – Event 52

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 […]

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 […]

Wasps v Exeter Chiefs – Event 46

Having been to Milton Keynes my next date was in Coventry at the Ricoh Arena – home of Wasps Rugby.  I was lucky enough to be stay the night with my lovely Saracens friends Steve and Clare. We had a great evening – I’m not too sure who was more shocked that I drank wine, me or them! And I […]

Northampton Saints v Saracens – Event 45

After an afternoon in London shocking my camera by taking photos with no element of sport involved whatsoever Saturday arrived and that meant rugby! Northampton Saints in conjunction with the RFU I imagine decided to play their home fixture against Saracens at Stadium MK in Milton Keynes. The game itself has become something of a draw as far as fans […]

Saracens v Leicester Tigers – Event 40

After the glamour of Paris it was back to Premiership Rugby and back to Allianz Park.  The season seems to be flying by and this was a key game. I’ve been ‘on holiday’ for the Easter period – I honestly have no idea how I manage to get myself organised, dressed and out the door for work in the mornings. […]

Saracens v Harlequins – Event 34

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 […]

Sale Sharks v Saracens – Event 19

What chance that Sales Sharks would be playing at home on the weekend of the World Club Series – well I suppose a 1 in 2.  A much slimmer chance that their opponents would be Saracens!  I couldn’t believe my luck when I saw that was the case, so promptly booked my ticket. Having had a decent nights sleep at […]

Saracens v Bath Rugby – Event 15

In spite of it being Round 2 of the Six Nations Tournament, Premiership Rugby still continues.  That seems slightly crazy, especially for those teams with lots of players featuring for their country. And so 2 such teams, Saracens and Bath Rugby faced each other at Allianz Park.  My journey was a different one to my usual M25 madness.  I was […]

Saracens v Blue Bulls – Event 12

With Premiership Rugby taking  rest and the LV Cup making a return a trip to Saracens still beckoned as they welcomed Super Rugby team The Blue Bulls.  I can feel myself going into match report mode but that’ll come later – so back into blog mode! My game day morning was spent waiting for carpet fitters then moving furniture around […]

Harlequins v Leicester Tigers – Event 6

A pleasantly good nights’ sleep in Gloucester saw me awake at stupid o’clock for a Saturday – but gave me time to write about my disappointing experience the night before.  I need to make a note to self at this point – Buy breakfast the day before when staying in a hotel!  Note taken on board. Having only had a […]

Gloucester Rugby v Saracens – Event 5

For some very strange reason a week ago I wasn’t going to the Gloucester v Saracens game; I sat with friends after the Saracens Storm game and listened to their plans, this got me thinking – why on earth am I not going??  Needless to say my ticket for the game was bought by 8am the next morning! The joys […]

Leicester Tigers v Bath Rugby – Event 3

An evening in a Hotel, in this case the Holiday Inn Express, Filbert Way, Leicester, the one opposite the King Power Stadium, tends to mean dinner alone.  The hotel don’t have a restaurant so I wandered round to the Steak & Grill Restaurant attached.  And so, the lady eating alone in the evening scenario occurred, somehow I often feel as […]

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 […]
