Pretty good start for us and I'm confident we can build some good early momentum for the rest of the season. As an exile it's great that we feature on BT 4 times in the opening 10 games.

I am less confident about the start. The Falcons usually play badly at home to Worcester and away to Bath. The schedule during the international games is more favourable.

That Barf game will be jet-lagged into oblivion so not going to be pretty.

Love that! I'll be attending the Worcester game and hopefully the Sale away trip which was brilliant last season, before I'm flown off to Sierra Leone. Really two good opening matches for us there!

I'll miss the Wuss game but would be good to catch up on the Sale bus.

A bit peeved that I will only get to a maximum of 2 home games before Christmas too many Friday night games for me. One consolation is that the Bath away fixture is one that is close to home for me so should be able to make that no problems.

I'm hoping to get down to a few closer to home (Northampton, Sarries, Quins) and hopefully my first 'home' game.

A Saturday lobbed in there too, I suspect the telly lot have something to do with it. If Falcons play rugby that people like to watch then get used to the telly people moving a few games about.

4.30 on a Saturday afternoon is excellent timing for the cheesey game. I will not be driving that day & intend to imbibe a goodly few ales at KP.

That is 4.30 American time I presume so you can consume many ales.

I think that's a favourable first few games. We need to stop making much out of the Worcester games, it's just all psychology in the end. Other than London Irish and Sale, no disrespect, that's the best fixture we would have wished for.
First few games winnable and we should focus on winning them because Sarries and Bath both hard games after.
Happy with that.
