Is this a first of the generations playing for the falcons?

I know we had the tait, tuilagi and matavesi brothers

But does George and now Gary qualify as our first father and son pair to play for the falcons.

Think Alan and Michael Tait were the first father-son Falcons.

Strong side! Liking the back row and the replacements will offer a huge impact.

Battle will be between the 10's.

With Harris and Socino on the bench it is hardly the disaster it would have been a while back, although a pity

I do Osric. My only area of concern is our scrum. Surely Wasps will target us there. But I feel the way Wasps play will suit us. Tigers were just too abrasive and I felt we just didn't respond.
Looking forward to seeing Graham go about his business in that back row. That's a nice balance there with Welch, who imo is better at 6 anyway, and Wilson at 8.

Wilson in particular, I hope will show why he should be in the England squad. C'mon Falcons!!
