Stale vs Wuss this afternoon. That's going to be a critical game.

Us and Bristol are still in the mix, particularly if Bris lose today as we play each other next.

Not yet. We're 8 points clear and there are 15 points to play for.

Need to keep the same intensity of purpose for Bristol, after that we might or might not be safe.

Worcester take 5pts off Sale. Falcons now 7 points adrift of 11th . Won't be the first club Deano has directed into relegation.

You're quite right but I'd have him back in a heartbeat!

I wonder what changes in the board and or management would be necessary for that to occur. Suspect those would be of more benefit.

Much as I respect Deano I don't believe he's the answer to out travails



The referee is the final arbitrary

Nor me, but I suspect he will be available at the end of this season. It is clear now that we do need an experienced Director of Rugby for next season to manage recruitment and build a new squad. I think we were very lucky on Friday night.

I think Deano would be part of the answer to our issues.
Certainly the back room issues.

Who is it he fell out with at the club? And I assume they are still involved with the club and therefore in the way of a return?

Peter Tom.

Surely? The only people with the power to sack him were Tom and Wheeler.

Are there not better options than Deano to potentially bring back?

And isn't this threaDd tempting fate?

Tempting fate maybe.

Better DOR's? I don't know?
He has a good record, who knows what Falcons position would be if he didn't have his budget cut from last year.

Actually, apart from his first few years with Tigers when he inherited Bob Dwyer's squad, he doesn't have a particularly good record which is why he was sacked. Didn't do awfully well at Quins, Grenoble or Falcons. Given the Falcon's squad, they shouldn't be facing relegation.

You mean taking the team that got relegated to finishing 2nd in the league and the Heinken cup quarter finals in 3 seasons isn't awfully well? He basically built the prem winning team.

Falcons have the lowest budget in the league, of course they will be down there. Name a squad that on paper is weaker than them? It was against all odds they got to the play offs last season.

s I understand it,Dean will not come to us without significant board changes, so all a tad academic
