Yesterday I took Steven to his first premiership rugby match. I've escorted him to a couple of Brighton football matches and the deal was that he had to come with me to this game. Harlequins vs Saracens at Wembley Stadium. We support Saracens in this house and unfortunately they lost, however it was a fantastic day out for everyone there. Rugby atmosphere is totally different to football. Even at Brighton who are a medium sized club with no reputation for trouble there are hundreds of police on duty on match day. Yesterday for a massive rugby match I didn't see a single police officer.
Pictures are rubbish because they are on my phone. We travelled by train which was fine till Clapham Junction where someone had apparently forgotten how many people might want a train to Wembley and we were squidged into a carriage with eleventy billion other people. So squidged I couldn't reach the phone in my pocket to take a photo of the squidged carriage. Luckily everyone is there for the same reason and it's laughing and joking all the way to Wembley where the train doors open and humans explode from everywhere.
About 20 minute walk to the stadium and we are in and finding our awesome seats right on the half way line.
Teams came out and did a bit of a warm up.
Then a rock choir came out and did a bit of a sing song.
These girls were throwing tshirts into the crowd but because they threw like girls no one beyond the first four rows stood a chance of getting one.
