I know, and I'm sure others do know of a way of watching without being ripped off. But obviously can't divulge that for obvious reasons.

i am pretty savvy at these things but make the point, if the stupid organisers charged less to watch it online than the £20 price ticket to attend live, it would not fuel the underground observers!

Good news indeed, but this must have been announced today as when I researched it, the suggestion was only available through florugby.com

12-10 to the Falcons vs Sarries at half-time. Two good tries, but some dodgy defence.

Enjoyable stuff and 2 wins out of 2 in a tough group. Enjoyed the offload around the back and that Radwan recovery to save a certain try and win the turnover. I was concerned that he had pulled out of the tournament, the buzz cut caught me by surprise.

Glen Young looks like he’s bulked up a tad over the summer. Looked considerably heavier than last year.

I though that too. How big is Joel Matavesi looks a massive unit.

Zach showing great pace, the defence needs to tighten up in the knockouts but good to get two wins last night, well done lads.

When Zach and Radwan has chances they took them, great speed, step and strength
A few of he bigger lads looked slow at times, leaking tries
Wacokecole looked good as did Nordii-Kelemeti

Unlucky in the end the boys. We beat sarries who go on to win it. Well done to the boys.

Should've won against Wasps really when another bizarre Wacokecoke offload went into touch and Wasps went the length.

Some great rugby on show though.

Matavesi also turned the ball over at key times and his restarts often did didn't have enough hang time to challenge for the ball. Could have done with Cowell or Connon. Given how tired the players were at the end of the semi maybe the final would have been a mixed blessing. Sarries won through strength and stamina more than anything else.

Matavesi had some good touches but also very soft for his size in one on one contact situations, much like his brother.

Lots of positives though. Radwan, Kibirige, Young, Uzokwe and Nordli-Kelemeti looked great.

Just seen a lot of the highlights from the 7's.

Radawn looks like he put one hell of a shift in defensively aswell! He absolutely dumped one player. And his covering back was top class. He looks strong despite his slighter frame.

That's a good sign for this season. We know what he can do offensively..but to see that sort of defensive work really gives you a lot of confidence.

And Kibirige just looks rapid!

I think a few of the kids will make a mark this season.

Me too, and I am looking forward to see what they can do. I am sure some of them will have awful games, but we have the right team around them to help them to learn from it & come back stronger.

They're not kids anymore, they're ready.

Radwan looked like he had bulked up. Definitely bigger since the last 7s tournament. Excited to see him feature more this season.

Fast and elusive players need to be careful about bulking up. Always thought Michael Stephenson was a better player before he bulked up.

Any extra bulk didn’t appear to slow Radwan down at all last weekend.

I didn't think Radwan had bulked up necessarily...more that he just looked stronger.

But yes either way it hasn't affected his pace...he was seriously quick. So was Kibirige though!

We have a nice blend of power and pace in the wings now.

And theres another young lad from the Gosforth academy I believe, who was promoted to the senior academy this season who is another bigger power type winger. Lets hope he develops accordingly as well.
