As always an interesting read and a perspective I am sure we can all agree on.

I have just a minor quibble and that is on your front row selection. I don't have a problem with either of the props but I would switch them around because Jon Welsh has more experience at playing at loose head.

I agree re props. Davey is an out and out tighthead and Jon Welsh can play either side very well. Is the Hammer fit for a bench spot yet at 23? I thought he was near or am I mistaken. Otherwise I agree.

Physical, aggressive and attacking.

Agreed, from the team and from the supporters.

I highly doubt we will see Hammersley in a Falcons shirt again until pre-season. He will have to undergo an extensive rehab programme and we only have four games left. I doubt the club will take any risks with him.

Looking forward to Friday night already. It would be nice to get that win to reignite the feel good factor again and avoid the end of season being a damp squib.

Yeah I agree about Hammersley. Not much point risking his recovery.

Though I did see a video the other week of Hammersley and the training he was doing suggested his knee is in good shape!.

Thanks for all the positive comments guys, I really appreciate it!

Aye KP should be quite noisy considering there hasn't been a prem game for so long so fans should be well up for it, and it's a Friday night which seems to bring out the best in us....

The boys will obviously want to bounce back after the dissapointing Quins game, even if we don't win all I want to see is effort, commitment and passion and I'll be ok with that, a win would be superb like...

Apologies for one error, The glos centre is called Mark Atkinson! Silly me...

Glos will be a tough game, they opened up a dangerous Cardiff side at the weekend and tore them to shreds in the last 30. We need to contain the likes of May and sharples and purdy off the bench, twelvetrees looked good, but can he do it consistently. That's always been his issue. Could be in for an absolute try fest with both teams chucking the ball right across the pitch.
