That is a strong team, seems more about keeping more senior players fresh than usual, but sill enough of the more junior players to gain experience.

I will get to see this one so looking forward to seeing the likes of Zack & Radwan mixed in with a strong team.

Big things expected by Jersey of Gary Graham. Looking forward to hearing about how he plays in his first 15 a-side game.

The locks on the bench goes to show the strength and depth we possess.

Almost half-time now. Falcons leading 7-0 but it's been a bit on the turgid side in all honesty. Both teams spending ages with the ball and not really getting anywhere.

Falcons try came from Charlie Wilson cutting inbetween the Sale defense after a lineout in the Sale 5m line.

I could only stay for the first half & it didn't have the zip you normally expect from these games, which is what you get I suppose if you have more senior players. More structure than usual so less madness but entertaining all the same.

5 try win without conceding any points, no complaints.

Surprised Sinoti stayed on all game, thought he would be taken off during the second half in view of Irish.

Yup. Nothing too spectacular but good to see some key players such as Burriws, Graham et al have a run out.

well it was a good solid win and not conceding any points is always a big plus. Highlight for me was Radwans finish from a deft cross field chip. a great diving catch and grounding
Uzokwe took some stopping with the ball in hand i think at one point he had 4 defenders hanging on to him. i hope he pushes on in the next couple of years hes one to watch.

one a side note i thought it was great to see the Sale replacement 9 on the pitch. he could not have been more than 5 foot 6 and 18 years old great to see the wee guys still get a chance in this modern land of giants. he looked nippy too.

Roll on Friday!!!

I thought the Sale starting 9 looked pretty nippy. All over the place & getting things zipping along, just what you want from the 9 shirt.

The replacement 9 would have come on sooner but he had to finish his homework
