27-27 after 50-odd minutes, this could be a basketball score!

As I type, Wasps score again :-(

My phone is going mad as it tries to keep with all the tries being scored. The latest shows that we have just broken the 50 point mark. Wasps 41 Falcons 53!!!!!!!

Anyone went down? Sounds like another dull game! Well done to the lads. Both teams had an intriguing combination of inexperience and stellar names. An excellent result.

Great game for entertainment but the true test in 2 weeks when we’re back down there again in the Premiership with a completely different squad and a full house. Standouts today were Radwan and Uzokwe they should be pushing for the first 23.

Well played Falcons back on the horse and winning in style ultimately this shows the depth of the squad we now have, with only 9 of the 23 having played in the Premiership this season and only 3 of the 23 have started a Premiership game the future’s bright.

I spoke to my Wasps friend who was at the game prior to kickoff and pointed out that both Radwan and Uzokwe were the ones to watch today and sure enough two try’s each.

He was full of praise for our young Falcons side and said quite a few have bright futures ahead I tend to agree with that and look forward to watch them develop over the next couple of years.

Put Radwan in space and he will score. An extremely accomplished finisher who could be a big player for us. It'll cost be interesting to see when he's given an opportunity in the Premiership. He'd certainly be a great option to have at least on the bench.

Radwan is a great prospect and exciting to watch attacking and in open play, but he's still a slip of a lad and could be a weak link defensively in the Prem until he matures a bit

According to the Wasps site it was the replacements that made the difference when they came on!

How did the Wilsons get on?

Davey lasted less than 20 minutes and from the comments on the Wasps site looks like the Falcons struggled in the scrum again.

Showed most of the tries on the Channel 5 highlights. Radwan's run for his second score is well worth watching. Tackling optional for both sides.

Media providing high praise to Adam Radwan. Flats called him a 'spectacular player who is more than just a finisher' and hopes to see him in the Premiership soon.

I think he shouldn't be thrown into the deep end just now, take the time to improve other areas of the game, keep him playing in the cups and depending on our league position he might get some exposure in the Premiership.

He does remind me of Jonny May. Here's hoping.

Deano mentioned Adam on Monday saying he is a fantastic prospect & exactly the sort of player that we want to develop & bring into the 1st team, but he is still some way off being that standard as an all-round player, part of the team. He also said that we should be looking to bring 3 - 4 players of that quality through the academy system every year, but we are still not achieving that yet.

All positive stuff & great to see the club putting such an emphasis on developing players like Radwan.
