Saracens have introduced a new and easier way for you to order tickets but still benefiting Pinner Rugby Club via the Cashback scheme!

A number of people have asked over the last couple of weeks if we are still selling Saracens Tickets this season. The answer is YES, however Saracens have changed their administration system which does make my life easier. For all games at Vicarage Road and the new stadium at Allianz Park Saracens are offering Pinner Rugby Club “Cashback “ £5 for every Adult and £2 for every Under 16’s Ticket purchased.

Please note the cash back offer is not available for the Saracens v Northampton Saints fixture at Stadium MK on 30th December 2012.

To purchase tickets you must enter the Saracens website using the designated link:

Users will need to register /create an account if you have not purchased from Saracens before., for each subsequent purchases you will simply follow the clubs URL and login again. Users must then follow on screen instructions and to book their tickets. Please note that your Tickets will be sent via post to you direct.

If you want to sit in the same area as your friends be sure to specify the stand and block you are looking to go for as this process will let the individual choose any seat(s) within the stadium.

I would encourage everyone to use the link every time you purchase a ticket to benefit from the club CashBack scheme. Cashback is a great way for Pinner Rugby Club to make money towards purchasing new equipment and other projects to benefit our children

A convincing win… last!

Pinner  RFC match report for Sat 20th October 2012

Pinner recorded their first league win if the season when fellow strugglers Old Grammarians from Tottenham were the visitors to Shaftesbury Playing Fields. P&G’s signified their intent from the off with a series of attacks and play was mainly in the O G’s territory. Early chances of scores went begging with missed penalties. With frustration at not getting points from their efforts they allowed Grammarians to get more into the game.  With twenty odd minutes gone Pinner won a line-out just inside the OG’s half.  The ball was fed to captain Aaron Nicholas who found support from flanker Goodwin who drove for the line. Prop Neill {bullet] King was on hand to force the first score.  Mark Razzell, back in his usual role of full-back, took over the kicking duties and promptly added the extra points. The next try was not long on coming when scrum-half Lane cut through the Grammarians defence to leave flanker Goodwin to power the last 15m to score on the left. The conversion was unsuccessful. P&G’s were now playing with confidence and three more chances of scores before half-time narrowly failed. Firstly OG’s were adjudged to have obstructed on the half-way line. The penalty was kicked into the corner.  Pinner gathered and drove forwards only to be held up on the line. P&G’s then won the resulting scrum against the head but the pass went forward.  Grammarians counter attacked and put a kick deep into the home 22 where full-back Razzell made an excellent ‘mark’ under pressure. Instead of kicking for touch he led a counter attack. Forty yards were made by Nicholas and winger Jepson seemed certain to score but lost control of the ball as he dived over the line.  However P&G’s went into half-time with a 12 – -0 lead.

Within a minute of the restart OG’s were penalised for not retiring 10 m. Pinner, sensing the defence was not organised moved the ball swiftly for centre Southam to score.  Razzell added the 2 points. One more try would give P&G’s a much needed bonus point win and they continued with the attacks.  OG’s were forced to kick out but failed to find touch.  The ball was gathered by full-back Razzell who again counter attacked. The ball was moved out to the left where lock Dave Logan completed the last 20 m to score in the left corner. OG’s had little to offer other than to kick up-field which led to more counters by the home side. The next scoring chance petered out when an attack from their own 22 saw P&G’s interchanging the ball freely only there to be adjudged a forward pass deep in the OG’s half. After 15 minutes the next score did come, again Goodwin, who sensing the lack of  organisation in the visitor’s defence, made a solo run from the 22 to score under the posts, Razzell adding the 2 points. With half an hour of this half over the referee, who up till then had had a good game seem to lose the plot.  Having legitimately moved a penalty 10m forward when a Pinner player disagreed with a decision he moved it a further 10m because of further back-chat. At the next play just inside the Pinner 22 and near the touch-line he mysteriously awarded a penalty try when Pinner replacement Burns had too much to say for which he received a yellow card and 10 minutes ‘rest’.  The game now became scrappy with penalties coming thick and fast. With the end in sight scrumhalf Lane took a quick tap-penalty on the OG’s 22 and ran more or less unopposed to score under the posts.  ,Man of the match, Razzell again added the conversion to make the final score 38 – 7 to Pinner and with their six tries a much needed 5 league point win.
