Premiership Rugby – Where are we now?

Rugby Union feels a long way in the past at the moment, what was a fairly unpleasant season as a Saracens fan came to an abrupt halt on the weekend of March 7/8th. Two teams had won 9 games from the 13th played, one sits at the top of the table, the other at the bottom. So, it wasn’t the […]

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 […]

Some Salary Cap Shizzle

I started writing about rugby for the site In The Loose, before setting up my own thing. I’ve always considered myself to be fair, impartial and unbiased, in fact I try my hardest to think about the game first then my team. Being a Saracens fan has tested that resolve since the news of their Salary Cap transgressions broke in […]

Saracens v Worcester Warriors – and a ray of hope!

It’s been a few days since Saracens played Worcester, I’ve been feeling rather disheartened since then, with the ongoing feeding frenzy from some media outlets after an interview by returning Chief Executive Edward Griffiths was twisted to suit whatever their agendas may be. One ‘journalist’ Laura Lambert, now seems to be going by her maiden name of Laura Scott, and […]

Saracens v Munster Rugby – The Champions Cup

Round 4 of the Champions Cup saw Munster arriving at Allianz Park; my first experience of Munster was at the impressive Thomond Park in Limerick in December 2012, followed up by their visit to the gloomy Vicarage Road. This was another double header and with the first match finishing Munster 15 Saracens 9 and the second Saracens 19 Munster 13 […]

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 […]

A £5.3m Problem

Over the weekend in Paris, I discussed some ideas that my good friend Steve had put briefly on a Facebook page, to me they made absolute sense so I asked him to get them down in writing for me – they’re worth a read! A little about Steve as a starter – I started watching Saracens just prior to their […]

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 […]
