Toulon v Saracens – The Challenge Cup Semi-Final

With a full-time job for a while this is a sitting on the sofa watch, having watched a cracking game between Saracens and Wasps in the final round of the Premier 15’s. Saracens face a team with some top class French players as well as one of my favourite players of all time, Sergio Parisse, still brilliant in one of the most key positions on the pitch at 38. Based on Saracens win at Gloucester they can beat any team at this time, I’m watching with bated breath and hope! It’s good to hear Nick Mullins and David Flatman on commentary, it should be a balanced affair commentary wise. I’m going to type this as I go along, so excuse […]

Saracens v Bristol Bears – The Showdown

My first experiences of watching professional sport on a regular basis happened standing on the terraces at White Hart Lane as a teenager, those were the days of rocking up and paying your money then trying to stay on your feet, in my case, while watching a game of football. That was in the mid to late 70’s and a […]

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 […]

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 […]

Premiership Rugby 2

Saracens v Sale Sharks

A bit of a general rant before I get into the game in hand. This week in the Premiership saw three Friday evening fixtures – Bath v Exeter – TV game – 102 Miles Bristol v Northampton – 113 Miles Wasps v Gloucester – 71 miles Only one of those matches was on the TV, being the Bath match, I’ve […]

London Irish 2

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 […]

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 […]

Premiership Rugby 2

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, […]
