Dave Dennis rested and no Matt Kvesic, bench looks light of forwards with only Ollie Atkins and Julian Salvi covering second and back row. Good to see Jack Nowell and Sam Simmonds back.
We will have to be on our mettle against a strong Falcons team!

As good as it gets in terms of that Chiefs lineup(and relived SAm's OK) but the Falcons aren't mugs. This'll be interesting.

I think we're going to see continual rotation this season with players being rested. I wonder what effect this will have on continuity. It would be good to see our best pack starting the big games.

Shame no Hepburn this week. Hopefully just being managed back and not injured again.

That is a pretty strong Falcons team. Notable is DTHVDM (Scrabble) at 14 who might not be fully up to speed in a team that relies on people fitting in, Willis at 10 who has only a small amount of Premiership experience yet has truly earned his starting shirt (enough to keep Flood on the bench) and Santiago Socino (Baby Socino as his elder brother has become a Falcons favourite) who again has proved to be a revelation despite a lack of experience.

Your team looks strong, at home and with a point to prove, so I expect this to be a challenge. It should be entertaining, which is after all what we all enjoy.

Really pleased to see Ollie Atkins back in the squad. I think he adds a lot off the bench and is a great impact player in the loose especially.
On the Falcons squad I am looking forward to seeing Santiago Socino again. He looks awesome in the loose,running some great lines like a back and we will have to watch him very closely.
Shame it's looking like being wet now.

Starting 15 looks exciting with Nowell and Simmonds back, bench a pit weaker.

Looking forward to the game
