Yikes, Saracens are just a rugby machine. I'd take any type of bonus points.

Good to see Sinoti back in contention.

I just hope the lads enjoy it, it's a big occasion for a lot of these guys, just go out, play your patterns and have some fun, because loooking at Saracens side I expect nothing from this. So yeah just have some fun and give it a crack.

Credit to all the Falcons fans out there now. Give an extra shout for me.

I get what you both mean, but our guys will surely be looking at themselves and fancy the chance to stuff it up them.

I like our side these days and I like the fact we are looking to take people on not survive against them. i.e. go out to win rather than go out not to get beaten

FF07 - one of our West Standers is out there! Sadly not I. Keep an eye out for our 4 falcon flag combo with a chequered flag attached. The yanks are gonna love it - it's a big'n!

From a Saracens fan, falcons have some very dangerous players in that squad, your confidence must be sky high, it's in a neutral venue, anything can happen, here's hoping for a positive impact and s good game, safe travels to those who have gone and may the best team win

That's class! Will give the boys a lift seeing familiar faces.

BEST fans in the league!

I intend to be at least mildly drunk by kick off so the Sarries team doesn't frighten me one jot.
(Sm100)

Just look on the bright side, if we do somehow manage a win, and anything could happen, we will be rightly top of the pops of the table.

Now that will be a fine excuse for another sherbet.

Re: Team v Saracens
NorfolkFalcon 15 September, 2017 12:51
Also I suppose that line up also puts the rumours about leaving star new signings to bed. Still no sign of Flood, DTH, Mermoz etc.

you can keep your best team winning theory, I just want the Falcons to win (Sm91)

That Saracens team would beat most national teams outside the top 3 or 4 .

Just what is up with Flood? If this keeps up we will not get the monies worth from him, I hope he is not going to turn into a wilko always injuredconfused smiley

Re: Team v Saracens
Falconski 15 September, 2017 15:18
You expect the club to tell you that lol

I had to ask a mate who plays for Westoe to find the crack re big Davie Wilson.

Good to see a bit of continuity from the Falcons, injuries or not. Looking forward to seeing Goneva in action from the start.
But, as mentioned, that is a hell of a Saracens side, and pretty much their first choice fifteen, going to be a really really tough game to get a result, but looking forward to seeing how far we have really come along.

Re: Team v Saracens
telfs123 15 September, 2017 17:18
Last week Deano said 1-2 weeks for Flood. So hopefully next week

Sarries didn't start with such a strong team against Bath. Farrell only played the last few minutes if not mistaken and Billy Vunipola wasn't even in the team. Just those two add 25% to that Sarries team imo.

Two absolutely world-class players there, to add to an already fantastic team.

Still, our team looks good too so we should be able to give Saracens a pretty good game, and in a 'cup final' scenario, who knows what might happen?

I wonder if the Sarries team enjoyed their breakfast?

Re: Team v Saracens

It's like the title winning season when we went toe to toe with Sarries for the title, all over again! Can only but dream.☺

This is the sort of rugby I want to see us playing tonight.
Play at pace like this then I think at least a losing bonus point can come our way.
I just wonder how fit Vunipola is? I can see him running out of juice due to lack of match fitness.
Quite looking forward to it, actually.
This game no dissing Sale and Worcester, will give us an accurate measurement of where we are as a team.
Challenges don't come harder than Sarries and Exeter as far as the AP is concerned, imo. Imagine the belief generated IF we won. I'd say the boys have arrived!

Dam hot over here in Philly. Had a choice of driving from London to watch the game at KP or fly to the States. I took the easy journey and booked a late flight. Come on you Falcons. And of course "Have a nice day"

Re: Team v Saracens
falconbear 16 September, 2017 21:40
Hopefully we've flown over Justin the PA. He'd be well suited to fire up the American crowds.

The stadium is empty. Why didn't they offer loads of free tickets to schools, etc etc.

I thought it was supposed to be a promotional game!

Re: Team v Saracens
falconsfan07 16 September, 2017 22:39
Issue is there is no interest. If people where interested they would turn up to watch. The stadium does look very empty like.

Mind you great to hear falcons in such fine voice. Can't hear the sarries lot!

Re: Team v Saracens
DB23 16 September, 2017 22:55
Looking forward to when we are a top four team and the referee (Doyle in particular) calls our players by their first name and referees the opposition only

Re: Team v Saracens
GeordieFalcon 16 September, 2017 23:03
Yeah, constantly hearing the falcons fans!! Great stuff.

I'd like to see us really try and take the ball to them a bit more. We're defending well, but we're putting ourselves under a lot of pressure. We'll concede more next half if we don't change it a little bit ....and I'm aware we're playing a top class side in Saracens.

Re: Team v Saracens
GeordieFalcon 16 September, 2017 23:20
Well as promotional games go...its not going to be gaining any new recruits from the major US sports!

Its woeful!
