Off to a flyer!

Well what a stunning weekend of rugby we were treated to in the first week back of the Aviva Premiership. There were upsets aplenty and likewise some very expected results that came out of the initial foray into climbing the league tables.

First and foremost you know I am going to talk about Glouce...

THE PREMIERSHIP IS BACK

So – you excited?? I am very, very excited about this next Premiership season. At this stage it looks very competitive with some fantastic new signings sprinkled throughout all the clubs. So let’s get down to it – who is going to soar and who will be taking a nose dive as we hit the Aviva Premiershi...

HONOURS EVEN

It was epic, it was enthralling and in the end you just could not separate the two teams.  Make no mistake despite the draw this was an incredible achievement by the British & Irish Lions against all the odds.

I am sure like me you heard a lot of people asserting confidently that the Lions would be...

The Opportunity of a Lifetime

Nervous? You should be!

Well, now that is different story… here we are two games away from the first test, and the Lions have got a lot to prove in those games to ensure that they go up against New Zealand feeling anything like a degree of confidence next S...

Make or break time

So two games into the tour and the Lions have suffered their first setback at the hand of the Blues, but was it all bad news for the boys in red? Let’s be honest, there were moments of grubby rugby and the ever-present effect of a team that haven’t fully gelled being played out by the Lions on Wedne...

LISTEN TO THE LIONS ROAR

I am not sure about you but I am fizzing with excitement about this tour.  First point – this is a very strong British & Irish Lions squad.  There are such classy options in almost every single position.  Just look at who got left behind and then at fly halves like Sexton and Farrell, second rows  W...

A FITTING FINALE

Twickenham on Saturday will be a blaze of colour, feathers and passion as the superb Exeter Chiefs attempt for a second time to make history for the club.  What an advertisement for promotion and relegation the Chiefs are with the way they have fought their way into the top league and demonstrated y...
