Warrigton v Catalan Dragons Challenge Cup Semi-Final 8.8.10

9 08 2010

Decided to carry on with my “get fit” campaign and part cycle to the game today. Had to work out how to carry a 400 lens,  two camera bodies, a laptop and a 70 -200 2.8 lens.  I used a North Face back pack for the 400 2.8 lens and one camera body,  a Thinktank Artificial Intelligence bag for the laptop and a belt system which accomodated a D3 and the 70-200 lens. I parked the car about three miles from the Stobart Stadium in Widnes.I have a Dawes Galaxy Tourer cycle which fits in the car and is quite light as well. After deciding to cycle I realised the the journey was all downhill on the way to the stadium,not looking forward to the cycle back to the car after the match!.

Arrived with time to spare,parked by bike in a secure cycle store in the main car park(why can’t all stadiums provide this?)  checked in and received my accreditation.

Great game, dominated by Warrington,glad that I decided to shoot at the end Warrington were attacking.

Warrington booked a return to Wembley on 28 August after storming to a dazzling nine-try Challenge Cup semi-final win over Catalans Dragons.The French side, beaten finalists in 2007, had beaten Warrington 29-28 in Perpignan just a fortnight ago.But there was no chance of another upset, forward Louis Anderson leading the way with three of his side’s tries.Ben Harrison, Matt King, Chris Riley, Lee Briers, Richie Myler and Jon Clarke also got in on the try-scoring act.

The final score was Warrington 54-12 Catalans Dragons.

Did not transmit from the ground and left just after half time.Cycled back up the hill and was glad to see the car after  about 20 minutes!
