Watched the game. It was a tight first half. Felt like we let Quins off before the break but second half we looked dangerous and took our chances
Fantastic

Utterly fantastic! Well done everybody at the club.

I am not normally one for paranoia, and i actually thinkbit helps the cause because it means we are STILL underestimated but does anyone else think bt sport are extremely biased against us. The only giys who give us credit are Flatman and Healey AND when we beat exeter they didn't even show the highlights and only mickey young "diving". Now, having beaten quins with a bonus point away from home and going to FOURTH in the table the only article on their website reads: "falcons end winless streak".

Errrrmmmm....

Anyway, i don't really care that much to be honest and am OVER THE MOON!

I honestly think that callum green is the best lock in the prem and that cooper is the best hooker. Our back row is fantastic and it waa great to see callum chick back today too.

I canít remember us, seemingly, have so much possession at an away game.

Wow! How well have the squad come together and improved this season? When you think about 2 or 3 seasons ago when it looked difficult for us to string a couple of phases together cohesively. Look at us now smashing Quins away, beating Exeter. The Sinoti try today is a great example. Quins didn't seem to buy the feint of Nili and Mike but Sinoti still went over from this inventive move.
I'm so proud of the squad...and the staff. My weekends are full of hope and positivity as a result. Falcons look deadly at the minute. Long may it continue and with a lot of our major signings extending contracts I'm hopeful the rest will follow. Why go to another "successful " club when you can play for the Falcons.
I totally agree about BT Sport being biased against us. Probably because they can't be bothered to travel so far to deliver coverage. I say leave them to it and let's quietly go about our business devoid of the hype other teams get.



It's a trick...get an axe.

I completely agree kraken. Also...what has micky young been on? He has been fabulous and os back to form that got him saxons recogniton.

This was what i was thinking about. Who on earth improves the team? I am thinking front row but everywhere else, i am not sure we need anyone. We need to keep hold of cooper, green and others as well.

Quinnís fans still seemed disgruntled that they were beaten by a team that over the years have struggled.
Our wins are always put down to who is missing from their squad and how bad the ref was!
We monstered Quinnís yesterday. The ref was clearly on their team sheet in the first half. Could have easily had a couple of extra tries but wouldnít have got us any more points.
Good to see Dean taking key players off early ahead of next weeks crunch game with Gloucester.
We are still in a place where every win is a pleasent surprise and we appreciate the effort put in by the team. Other clubs expect wins and are angered when they donít. Arrogance is never a good thing so long may we be the underdog!!
Though with one of the best defences, with two of the most dangerous wingers in the premiership and an ex England No10, not sure why people are shocked at us being good !!

Yeah, good points above. The BT Sport coverage rarely gives Falcons credit for 'monstering' other teams. It's always their run of bad results etc and not how well Newcastle have played or become. Let us keep smirking at their incredulity at our team's form.

Fantastic night in Edinburgh then find out we are 4th after a good thumping of Quins.

Weekends don't get much better than this.

Tigers have done us a favour. Sarries are still within our reach. Think positive!

Iíve had a load of top quality nights out up there.

Most of them didnít take any effort at all.

Just trying to find out if Monkey is a hidden spy for the SRU takeover or not 😄😄😄😄

Is there an SRU takeover planned? I thought it was just a load of speculation by a newspaper, a reporter having made up a story about a possible arrangement, then further speculating that this could be as much as a 20% stake, but in reality could be no more than buying a bottle of cheap whisky for Deano in return for who knows what?

Coming from somebody who considers journalists to be vermin, that is giving one of them a lot of credibility for what the rest of us assume to be nothing more than a load of guesswork to make a story to fill a space.

I have heard he drinks anything, and I still blame him for there being no screenwash in my under-stairs cupboard where I could swear I had left some.

Back on topic, has anyone stopped themselves looking through the fixtures for the rest of the season and trying to predict the outcome?

Would we take that now??

The graphs on the Wuss site have made it unreadable. Somebody found a new toy, how to make masses of bar graphs and upload them to the internet. You can't read any thread without scrolling through acres of the blasted things.

With the games we have left I think anywhere between 10 - 20 points is realistic. It may depend on how sensible our lads can be, as they seem to get a bit carried away with themselves after a good run, then put in a stinker, then recover again. It is all so unpredictable, and makes for a great season.

Secretive creature with big feet, kept in the dark most of the time, does a lot of digging, rubbish eyesight, but somehow strangely beautiful.

Aye, that sounds about right.

When we finally learn of Deano signing a new contract, I will celebrate by offering him a generous measure from the rarest and most expensive malt whisky in my collection, Dallas Dhu. If he wants to make a session if it, I have plenty of other choices.

By the way, we may be 4th in the Prem, but not on the Offy site where we are still languishing at 6th. Software getting softer, Smithy?
