I am told on my tablet that Radio Newcastle's online commentary is not available in the part of France I currently find myself staying, Saumur in the Loire Valley. Can some kind soul keep me posted on progress via the Forum?

class commentary from Mr SMith

"I'm certain Ryan Burrows has got that try, or maybe even Mark Wilson,but it could have been Sean Robinson."

was he certain we scored - lol

Falcons Twitter says it was Jon Welsh who scored it

I thought you folks who lived out in the sticks had young small chaps who were shoved up said chimneys to clean them ?

Not the right way to treat scrum halves.

It is if they kick the ball all of the time

Full time 20-21. Falcons win! Cracking result in France.

Anyone who attended care to provide a MoM? Burrows sounded like he had a good game and has put his hand up for next Sunday. Any enforced subs due to injuries?

Watched the Leicester match. They were sublime, Castres were woeful. The former makes me think that any points would be a good result!

Cue variation on a song I sang after an equally narrow win over Narbonne. To be performed to the tune of Were You There When They Crucified My Lord.

Ready? Were you there when we beat Bordeaux by one.
We're you there when we beat Bordeaux by one.
Sometimes it causes me to tremble, tremble, tremble.
We're you there when we beat Bordeaux by one.

Now for the celebratory drink of Loire Rouge. Bon nuit mes amies.

Certainment un cause de grande celebration. Je will be having le vin, possiblement avec des fromages aussi.

4th in the league, well equal 3rd really, and two out of two in the cup. Not a bad season so far to be a Falcons supporter.

Fantastic result.

Dean has once again singled out Gary Graham as outstanding as was Ryan Burrows. Bodes Well!

This is a huge win on the context of the group. Get wins against the Russian side including a bonus point at home (with all due respect we should be aiming for this) and we are in the driving seat to win the group.

The team just keeps on delivering this season. Well done to all.

Looking forward to the Leicester game with confidence and excitement rather than with some trepidation which is a much better place to be

What a great result; we are rapidly developing into a team that won't be beaten.

Much more still to do, but at least there is now a realistic prospect of a home quarter final. Zut alors,woohoo!!

This is the 3rd game this season we have won by 1 point. Dare I suggest that last season we would have lost all 3. This surely is the difference in a nutshell.

I agree we have turned losses in to wins.

Where is the game in Russia in January? Anyone going?

GF, we don't yet know the details for Russia. Suggestion seems to be Krasnodar but nothing confirmed at this stage.

Ah, the same high standards of organisation for this competition as last season. How on earth are teams supposed to plan travel etc properly, it should all be booked by now & the muppets in charge can't even decide where the game might or might not be played. The management at KP have my sympathy.

Radio Gold Aidanb!! I did not have a clue but saw two black scrum caps go over the line, Burrows and Wilson. When they got up Robinson was underneath them two. The arguments as to whether Welsh actually got it went on for a while but the font of all knowledge, my son, said he did. The Man of Northern was just laughing at me!! Best advice my dad ever gave me was don't take yourself too seriously. That apart, I hope we captured the atmosphere of the game.

You did that brilliantly.

I was sitting at home listening to you guys and loving every minute of it.

The last few tense minutes were amazing

My favourite that I remember was when the Bordeaux replacements started to come on in the second half. Smithy said something along the lines that he couldn't tell who it was but he was hoping it was Dufour or he would be stuffed to pronounce the other one.

Very enjoyable as always. I love being able to picture the game in my head just from the commentary.

Falc, the only highlights are on BT's wrap-up show, and last week they only showed one of our tries so am not sure what (if any) airtime they'll give us.

We don't own the TV rights so we can't offer a highlights package, unfortunately.

As for the identity of the third try-scorer, nailed on as Jon Welsh. Ryan Burrows got the first, despite the stadium announcer crediting it to Cal Green.
