The boys are back in town..........



Saturday saw the kick off of the 2009/10 Guinness Rugby Premiership... Sarries were at Twickenham for their opening game against London Irish in the Double Header. This is where the 4 London clubs all meet at Twickenham to play against each other.
Saracens 'v' London Irish and Harlequins 'v' Wasps.

There was obviously lots of testosterone flying around as there was several 'sin bins' fights and a red card 46 seconds into the harlequin & wasps game.... great fun all round!

We got to Twickenham about 1 hour & 45 minutes before the game which allowed us to park up adjacent to the ground and get the picnic table out, as we were setting up a range rover pulled up behind us with the number plate W4SPS.. and out jumped Lawrence Dallaglio who proceeded to set up his picnic table!
At half time we caught up with some friends of mine who were sitting about 6 rows from us... pretty ironic in a crowd of 67,000. We had drinks back at the car where we caught up with Paul Sakey.. my friend Janet was beside herself!
and to finish it off Sarries beat London Irish (which was so not expected!)... a great day all round...

Oh I'm so jealous!!!!
Unfortunately every time Victoria and I go to watch rugby we get hit by the ball!

Sounds like you had a lovely time!

Lots of Love
