Great game Newcastle Falcons 1st team have gone home with there tails between their legs.
Great unselfish run again by Cordero for the first try.

I hope Rob is waiting for him tomorrow with a pen.
Get him signed up for next season at least.
Great game by Joe Simmouds and Salvi .
The referee had a terrible game.
Well do to the whole team.

Sorry don't agree with your comment about the ref. He was spot on, decisive & fair.

Back at Sandy Park...and got the joy of seeing Cordero in full flight from ETS! Well done Rob for finding that guy. And well done to that Chiefs side for seeing off a Geordie side that clearly meant business - brilliant stuff!

Now to see if Gloucester next weekend is doable!

He was probably fair in the end but due to his mistakes evening out.
Can't get my head around his decision to award a knock on rather than a penalty against Goneva first half and it was as inexplicable as his decision to award us a 5 metre scrum in the second half when it was a clear penalty against us due to holding on.
He didn't have a great game but the key decisions went in our favour on balance as we eventually scored from that 5 metre scrum!

Only watched on the TV prior engagements, but I think the ref team had a generally good game. There are always the odd thing missed as they do not get the replays I did, but he was clear to the players what he wanted and pretty fair to both sides.

Karl Dickson will be an international referee. He has the advantage of playing high quality rugby, this was obvious in the way he continually picked out the way players were trying it on. His communication was clear, concise and professional (not too chummy). Some excellent in-play comms with the TMO which helped the game move on. Consistent interpretation of the Laws. And finally, if you get a chance, look at the way he positioned himself throughout the game, spot on.

I thought he was good.

thought he was fine - and on re-watching on TV, some of my frustrations were unfounded.

I would however question the final penalty to Falcons, as that looked very tenuous!
