That could very well be the first choice back 5 this season!

In George and Santi we have 2 very good hookers. When Kyle is back in contention it will be a massive contest.

I'm Sure Callum Green, Tevita Cavubati, Glen Young, Gary Graham, Connor Collett and Nemani Nagusa might want to dispute that and just goes to show what a good back 5 we also have


It's a strange old place to be going into the season feeling like we are properly on the front foot.

Can we all stop panicking about Lockwood too since since he's in the squad for Doncaster on Saturday?

I completely missed Green. He'd be first choice. But aside from him...if Deano had to put a team down...id put my mortgage on that back five..Witty out Green in.

However you are completely correct, we have some serious selection options now.

Shows how far we have come.

Some really strong options in the back 5, we're looking good there. Hooker is possibly the best we've had in years, any of the 3 would be a great option.

Both of our sides over the weekend look great. We have strength and depth in numbers.

Radwan has a great chance to stake his claim against Saracens.

I have liked the way the falcons coaching staff have picked the sides so far for pre season, a good blend of youth and experience, giving the new academy lads plenty of chances to impress, and giving them the chance to play alongside seasoned players at the club, which can only be good for the long term.

Also putting two sides out such as these, shows the depth we have at the club and bodes well for the upcoming season.

Brilliant news to see Davy Wilson back on the Falcons bench. He has been very unlucky with injuries since re-signing and deserves a good run in the side, or coming from the bench, as he is a major asset when fit.
