Hi Ayerza
You’re correct, Radwan and Kibirige on the wing are rapid.

Penny is a classy rugby player, young player coming back from some long term injuries but good to watch.

Uzokwe is a physical presence in the back row and can be explosive offensively.

Enjoy

I think Radwan is the most well known youngster but I think Uzokwe is just as exciting to watch. He has all of the attributes to make it. He just needs to keep learning the game and work hard.

Uzokwe reminds of Armitage in build, when I've seen him his handling has been a bit iffy on occasion but I think he has a lot of potential

Leicester cried off when this fixture was originally scheduled to avoid playing young props. They are still playing young props plus over half the 23 from Loughborough. Of course they could still get a win, but at this stage they appear to have shot themselves in the foot.

Who stole the jam out of your doughnut?
It's the development league it doesn't really matter that much if we win or not.

Just realised Willis is on the bench too, Connon preferred at 10.
Does this mean Willis could be leaving along with JPS?

I'd be a little narked if I was Santi Socino and Willis. They've played really well when given opportunities in the first team but are seemingly behind other players and are constantly overlooked. I really expected Santi especially to feature more with Lawson taking more of a backseat.

But those in front of them are playing well and we're getting results?

Not disputing that, I'm just surprised that they weren't given more playing time after that breakthrough game against Bath.

Bonus point win for the Falcons against the students & co 33-10. Another trip to Sandy Park for the A league semi finals is looking likely.

I was there (For first half at least, it wasnt fun in the rain, when you weren't prepared for rain) I was in the area on business and coincidentally seen it on twitter.

Anyway Scott Wilson took his second try superbly following a fantastic line by Santi. Uzokwe although im a big fan wasnt really in the game and looked tired from 10/15 minutes in. Callum chick looked impressive in the back row, nailing tuilagi a couple of times. andrew Davison is a penalty machine. Gave away 3 in first 5 minutes alone.

It was good to see how Evan Almighty and Ryan burrows interacted with the young guys and were constantly motivating and encouraging the lads.

Brett Connon seems like a better 15 than 10, and sam stuart was looking nippy in and around the ruck area, fizzing the ball around in terrible conditions.

Nothing much to say otherwise. solid 7/10 team performance

I braved the weather which did improve 2nd half - Falcons just seemed to have the edge in both the backs and the forwards. Scrum time Falcons dominant, could easily have been awarded penalties on another night but the ref let the game flow.
