Doing anything Saturday? FREE professional rugby!

As you know, Letchworth is linked to Saracens which gives us free or reduced price tickets to many of their games. Except that Saracens play on Sunday afternoons, which is often when we play so we can rarely take advantage of the offer.

This is a pity as watching professionals play can be a big help - and watching on TV is nothing like seeing a live game.

Turns out that Fern is a Bedford Blues fan and is suggesting that we join her at Bedford's next home game against Leeds Tykes (relegated from the Premiership last season) on Saturday.

As well as being a bit nearer than Watford entry to the ground is FREE for all U16s (or anyone who might reasonably pass for U16 - so that is everyone!), though as I recall you would have to pay if you wanted to sit down in the wooden stand (most people don't). The ground slopes a bit as I recall (a bit like our ground), so you get a good view from the touchline.

And it is a pretty good standard of rugby. Leeds were playing in Europe 12 months ago, and Bedford are currently second in National One - so could well be joining the likes of Saracens etc. next year (always assuming that they do not pass Saracens going in the opposite direction, of course!).

Kick off is 3pm, so we'd probably be wanting to leave Letchworth c1.30ish.

If you are interested please get back to me - it'll be a good afternoon out, unless you have something else planned! And if you do, then maybe we can look to go to a later home game.

We can probably organise transport if need be.
