A very English Affair – A bit of a rant

It’s not often I take to my keyboard to rant, well other than on Twitter or Facebook at times, but after being at the opening game of the Rugby World Cup and after many words said about the potential line up for the England v Wales match, I feel the need.

Saracens v Bath Rugby – A key game!

The lunacy that is the 6 nations window – a time that sees many teams hugely depleted saw Saracens lying 3rd in the table take on Bath Rugby sitting 2nd above them.  If you were a casual rugby goer you’d struggle to see any weaknesses in either team as both fielded an impressive line up.

Rugby and the City

In a bid to find out more about Sports sponsorship and in particular Sanlam Private Investments and Saracens I set up a meeting with Andrew Lewis – Senior Advisory Stockbroker at SPI. He inhabits a world I know nothing about so I thought I’d find out a bit about him before we spoke Saracens specifically. How do you get to …
