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 […]

Saracens v Lyon

The fall out from the Owen Farrell tackle in Gloucester kept many busy on social media as far too many chose to throw hate both his and, by way of a change, Saracens way. All Disciplinary Hearings Findings are available online and several snippets were shared on social media. I thought it might be interesting to share the ‘Findings of […]

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 […]

Lyon v Saracens – The Champions Cup

I’m watching this one form the warmth of my sofa, huge credit to those who travelled to France just before Christmas! Saracens had a strong team but were missing one of their key players, talisman Maro Itoje, he was injured in training. They went into this match unbeaten, I’m slightly perturbed that we have Lawrence Dallaglio bigging up Saracens before […]

Saracens v Edinburgh Rugby – The Champions Cup

Another freezing cold day saw Saracens involved in their first Champions Cup match since they won the thing in Newcastle on May 11th 2019. The visitors were Edinburgh, the 2 teams played each other in the Challenge Cup last season with Edinburgh on the exact day in fact. Edinburgh won that tight affair by 18 points to 21. Their Argentinian […]

Saracens v Tel Aviv Heat

Gaps in the Premiership Rugby schedule has seen those teams still standing seeking ways to fill the resulting gaps, for some that has meant games against the Barbarians for Saracens it meant an invite to Tel Aviv Heat. The team fielded by Saracens was reminiscent of the Storm teams of 9old, a mixture of the ‘old’ and ‘new’ with the […]

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 […]

Bath Rugby 2

Saracens v Bath Rugby

Strange things happen to you when you have grandchildren, this is my oldest grandson’s 6th birthday weekend and today I went to his birthday party rather than the match at the Stonex Stadium, an afternoon with all 5r of my grandchildren taking priority over Saracens? Whatever next?? Thanks to PRTV I can sit in the comfort of my living room […]

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 […]

Saracens v Harlequins – The Premiership Semi-Final

What could be better than a sunny day, A Premiership Semi-Final and a local derby at that! It was definitely cricket weather for this match up. Quins fans travelled across London in numbers, it was great to catch up with some of my avid Quins fan friends. Harlequins had proved the naysayers wrong and backed up their Premiership Final win […]
