A night at the Rugby

A night with The Saracens

With the girls coming back from their week with Dad and Shirley, I took the opportunity to grab a couple of tickets to take Dad to Goldington Road to watch a pre-season friendly:


The final score may have been emphatic but this was always going to be the toughest test of Bedford Blues’ pre-season as they were eventually overpowered by Premiership giants Saracens.

However, this was a gutsy display by the Blues in the face of one of the strongest sides in Europe, who had to work hard for every one of their seven tries.

The hosts restricted Sarries to just two scores as they dug in during the first half, but Saracens were able to bring on 18 players after the break and this amazing strength in depth proved to be too much.

Some huge hits, great view from our ‘directors box’ seats (and a couple of pints of Eagle) turned out to be a really good evening.

Superfast ‘free’ upgrade

Broadband renewel time…

A two minute chat with Sky Broadband landed me the Unlimited Pro package for the same price that I was currently paying.

They quoted ‘up to 76Mbps’ download – From what I can see, that is a little conservative (being 100 yards from the Fibre junction box helps though).

Pleased so far:

Try broadband speed test

The key for me isn’t just the download speed (which others can match), but the upload speed of close to 18Mbps.

For the amount of images and videos that I push to my site, this is imperative.
