Thatís an incredibly strong team. Wasps may have the superstars but I think they must see them as second favourites for Friday night. Would be a real statement of intent to get 4 or 5 points.

Phew that is a seriously tasty backline we're putting out there! Can't wait to see how that line-up gets on.

Interestingly a fair few changes from Wasps, with a few ex-Falcons in there. Anyone remember Ben Morris? Academy graduate deemed surplus to requirements by Dean a few years ago. With their bench they will be finishing strongly in the last 20 minutes, will be hoping for a decent lead before then!

Agreed. Lots of Wasps missing for various reasons but they have a far stronger bench than ours. A strong start required in front of a raucous Friday night south stand!

Just to clarify, Markís point was that England training needs to be at high intensity because they donít get as much time together as club teams. He wasnít saying itís TOO intense. And by all accounts the Bristol camp was reasonably low key on that front.

Our boys wouldn't have got any time off, as we were in Sale last Saturday. The England camp was in Bristol from Sunday through Tuesday. Dai's decision to put them on the bench for this evening's game is, I think, a sensible one.

Aargh! Only got home at 81 minutes but a very tense finish, very annoying to lose by one point. Can't believe the referee didn't give a penalty or at least advantage for Wasps flying over the top, he clearly saw it as he told the player to get back, it was in a very kickable position.

Speechless. Both for how we threw it away. But most of all for Karl Dickson in the last plays. He decided he wasn't penalizing Wasps.
5 penalties
-Robson dived over
-Hughes offside (Dickson said "he didn't influence the pass, despite running right at Flood)
-Wasps player in at side
-Robson rolled into Takalua
-Another wasps player lay on wrong side of ruck, no effort to roll.

It was either Falcons score a try or Dickson waits until Wasps won the game.

On the other hand, manage that game correctly, and we have a 5 point win.

Regardless of any decision that should or shouldn't have been made at the end of the game regarding the Hughes offside, the falcons should never have been in that position. They made way too many basic errors and were not at all clinical in the final third. Errors that should not be made at this level if the falcons want to be a top side.

I would even go as far as to say that they threw the game away. May sound a bit harsh but wasps were there for the taking, and we were simply not up to the task when it came to the big moments in the game.

Let's not be harsh on the team. I think we're just lacking a bit of control, the little things. The team are playing good rugby and we're creating chances. We just need to be more clinical as above. Sale is now a must win game, and I think we can win there. Keep the faith. That's what makes a Falcon fan.

We really did throw the game away there, you are very much correct. Dickson could have maybe given a penalty for Robson diving off his feet at the ruck but we should never have been in that position at the end of the game.

There was no way it should have been 15-13 at half time, with many basic errors being made deep in their 22. Even more infuriating was our inability to exit from restarts, with all of their points in the first half resulting from restarts we dealt poorly with.

Brocklebank's great break should have been finished off which would have given us the try bonus point as well as extended our lead to the realms of the unassailable

Penny did look a powerful runner when we came on however, though we did miss Hammersley when he went off injured. Of course he is a threat with ball in hand but he is also very adept at releasing Sinoti, and I don't think it's a coincidence that his influence diminished after Hammersley's departure.

Cavubati made some lively carries though these were coupled with a few disappointing errors that curtailed momentum in the first half. Much prefer the Green/Witty combination and await Robinson's return with eagerness.

Flood as ever controlled our attacking shape well and defended with bravery, I really think we would be lost without him at the helm and do not agree with criticism of him

Wow, surprised at the comments here. As a neutral (probably wanting Falcons to win, truth be told) I thought the officials were pretty good on the whole. They're never going to get everything right but by and large did and were fairly consistent. Falcons were also flying off their feet a few times at the end so were lucky not to get penalised too.

Obvious talking point for me was the choice to not take the easy points on offer when you were two in front, instead to the corner and turned over. Also slow taking conversion from chalked off try which would have meant it stood. Very small margins in this game, you need to do everything you can when you get the chance.

What was with so many fans streaming out well before full time too? I don't think you have much to worry about this season, I think most other nights this match would have gone in your favour and lots to be pleased about. That 1 of yours looks special, set piece was very good as was attack. Good luck for rest of season, except against Bris of course. winking smiley

Agree Rqb. We can't beat ourselves up too much. Personally I like the combination of Green and Robinson. For a big lad I just feel Witty could be more destructive. The brute of Green and the all action style of Robinson gives us better balance, imo.

Well I said at half time we'd rue some chances..you could read it a mile off.

However...

In hindsight its easy to say take the points from the penalites...but we all cheered the bravery of going for the lineout and trying to get tries.

The one positive is that in the last 3/4 games we've visibly got better and when we're annoyed that we didnt beat Exeter and Wasps, then things are going in the right direction. We played some top class stuff at times tonight.

We have to beat sale and i think we will. Just make sure we are a bit more clincial / efficient.

Whats happened to Hammersley..? He's suddenly found his ice skates again and is gliding past plahyers for fun.

And Sinotti...wow what a freak of a player he is! No other in the world i would say. Falcons fans are lucky we've had the privelage of watching him over the last few years!

As previously mentioned everything is easy with hindsight.
If we had gone over with one of our kicks to the corner and won the game with a TBP there would be little criticism of making that decision.
Itís a tough one to take as I feel we really lost that game rather than Wasps winning it.
We played some very good rugby at times and I actually think we look a better team than we did last season.
Wasps got away with everything in those closing minutes and played well beyond the edge of the laws.....a more experienced referee would have stepped up to the plate and made the big call and we would have probably kicked a penalty to win the game.......that said we only have ourselves to blame for missed opportunities and I know the guys will be hurting after that tonight.
Thereís a lot of rugby to play and Iím sure will be fine come May.

I thought that the rules have changed on conversions now, as was shown after the Wasps ďtryĒ that was disallowed on review after the conversion had been taken. Flood clearly didnít know as drop kicked conversion after first try as Johnson went to ref asking for review of forward pass. That cost us 2 points and an early lead.

I think last night summed up how far we've progressed in the last few seasons, as well as highlighting the gap that exists between us and the top teams. Some of the line breaks were sublime, the running lines were inventive, the jackaling superb, the support runs delightful, the offloading in the tackle breathtaking etc etc. But for all this, the game swung for me on a key moment with Penny's disallowed Try in the corner. When the ball was spun wide, we had a clear 4 on 2, and to fail to execute the play with a Try at this level is not good enough. Had we got the Try, we'd have had some breathing space. Instead, we paid the price for not taking the chance when it was served up on a silver platter.
There's enough positives to take that we can be confident of a mid-table finish. So all is not lost.

I think youíre right there KP. Not sure if itís a Law as such, or ever was, but I believe that refs are now ignoring a quick conversion if TMO agrees there is an issue to rule upon.

The actual Laws as detailed [laws.worldrugby.org]

are as follows:-

LAW 8. Scoring, THE CONVERSION


8.7. When a try is scored, it gives that team the right to attempt a conversion, which may be a place-kick or drop-kick.

8.8. The kicker:
a. Uses the ball that was in play unless it is defective.

b. Takes the kick in the field of play on a line through the place where the try was awarded, parallel to the touchlines.

c. Places the ball directly on the ground or on sand, sawdust, or a kicking tee. The kicker may be assisted by a placer. Nothing else may be used to assist the kicker.

d. Takes the kick within 90 seconds (playing time) from the time the try was awarded, even if the ball rolls over and has to be placed again. Sanction: Kick is disallowed.

8.9. The kickerís team, apart from a team-mate holding the ball, stay behind the ball when it is kicked and do nothing to mislead their opponents into charging too soon. Sanction: Kick is disallowed.

8.10. If the ball falls over before the kicker begins the approach to kick, the referee permits the kicker to replace it. While the ball is replaced, the opponents remain behind their goal line.

8.11. If the ball falls over after the kicker begins the approach to kick, the kicker may then kick or attempt a dropped goal.

8.12. If the ball falls over and rolls away from the line through the place where the try was awarded and the kicker then kicks the ball over the crossbar, the conversion is successful.

8.13. If the ball falls over and rolls into touch after the kicker begins the approach to kick, the kick is disallowed.

To be fair, Wasps could equally vent frustration at not scoring a try that was nailed on when Daly? Was gifted a clear run through a gap the size of Switzerland yet he stuck to the drill & passed to ball along the line. He will kick himself for that one for a long time, but it happens, especially when the pressure is on.

Speaking as one of those, I was not leaving, simply walking around to the East Stand terrace so I can watch the end of the match and get to my car parked in the car park and leave before I'm stopped for at least 10 minutes.

A big bugbear is the fact that the entry stewards at the North end of the East Stand make a deal of allowing a West Stand season ticket holder through that entrance as opposed to having to walk all of the way around the ground. We pay to get into the car park which is 100% margin to the Club, and using this entrance reduces the queue in the West Stand so what is the problem? It actually discourages the use of the car park, and hence I think that the club should review their instructions to their stewards.

A really frustrating game which we really should have won given the rotation by Wasps. Missed chances and sloppy handling (which is creeping back into out game) cost us after a good start to the game.

I thought the ref was fine and some good performances from the likes of McGuigan again kept it entertaining. Sopogana seems to settling into the Premiership quite well, not a bad signing for Wasps on around 500k....

To be fair , last season we employed the tactic from previous years of relegation battles of not getting carried away and taking whatever points we can, even if that meant going for the sticks every time. This year we have confidence from last seasons table position which has given th lads the desire to win big and make statements . Itís w nice idea but given the close margins and how attentional it will be this year with no weak teams, we probably just need to keep them score board ticking over .

I think the loss of experienced players has hit hard, nevertheless if they want to be a regular top 6/4 team they need to put games like this one away. Far too many missed opportunities - Sarries or Exeter would have put away.

Ironically I work sometimes as one of those stewards. In their defence they are following instructions. It was just annoying as it was quite a crowd that built up and anyone in front two rows of West stand struggled to see anything for about 5 mins.
