Howay lads,

14 years of waiting and we finally return to the Heineken cup away at 3 times champions Toulon.

These are the days we've dreamt about since the likes of Tuigamala and Burke donned the famous jersey.

Now our modern heroes of Goneva, Sinoti and Kyle Cooper take us to one of the most anticipated away days in the clubs history. Toulon, the so called galacticos of world rugby, have 4 world cup winners, 1 olympic gold medalist and a British & Irish Lion. And I tell you what I'm bloody up for it. Message boards eerily quiet so thought I would take it upon myself to get us revved up.

Will be in Wayne's bar in Nice from 5pm on Saturday, look forward to seeing Falcons fans there.

The Times today carried an article about the crisis at Toulon following their defeat last week by Montpellier. Shades of Leicester. I'm delighted to see it is being televised.

Flood, Welch & Goneva all broken at Sale so not surprising. Harris last seen banging his head off a brick wall so possibly failed a HIA after that.

I am intensely jealous of those who can make this game, in fact I don't even know why I am responding to you. Excuse me while I sulk.

Havenít been this excited since Carl Hayman signed/when Kingston Park introduced the double pint cup.

No expense spared on this trip, I was going to send my second born to RGS Newcastle until the mighty falcons got in to Europe. Heís at West Jesmond Primary now, and whilst his brain isnít getting a workout, my passport certainly is!

Heading over on Saturday and have hired executive travel (potentially a Bentley continental) to get me to Wayneís Bar for happy hour. The French Riviera will be a dark shade of ruby by the time the Geordie Lads are done with it!

Can I just check you are talking about the weather forecast rather than it not being a dry weekend?

Not going but really looking forward to watching the game. Since Mrs L went back to work and she does Sundays, Baby L and I have got into the habit of watching rugby on TV on Sunday afternoons and this is the big one!

Hope everyone going to France has a safe journey and a fun time!

With Joel at 10 and Sinoti flying down the wing, i can only foresee one result...A FALCONS VICTORY!!

It seems to me that looking at the way Toulon play this is an ideal moment for Sinotti on one wing and Radwan/Kibirige on the other.

Right then,

Just over 48 hours before we board the flight and embark on a weekend which sees The Newcastle Falcons play their biggest game in a decade.

The scene is set. The Cote D'Azur beckons for the boys from the North East. It's not often times like this come around, 14 years since top-flight European Rugby and no better way to start our journey at the home of Europe's elite - Toulon.

They have money, all blacks, Lions and a stupid fella who shouts before the game. But what they fundamentally lack is passion, belief and any kind of double pint system.

A sea of black will decend on the south of France, chants of Falcons...Falcons will echo from every corner. I think we all know who wants this one more, we go big this weekend my fellow supporters.

Meet at Wayne's bar Nice from 4 pm Saturday.

UTF.

Setting off for a drive to Hertfordshire in about an hour and flying from Luton to Marseille mid day tomorrow. Due into Toulon early Friday evening. Hoping for a good game and a great weekend. Has anyone found that European wine lake?

Does any one know who owns the GIGANTIC falcons flag that is often seen at away fixtures? Would be great to welcome the team bus screaming 'FALCONS FALCONS FALCONS' with said flag.

Place de la Liberte, Toulon midday Sunday until match time appears to be a suggested meetup.

FM, Itís my nephews flag and unfortunately weíre not taking it to Toulon, hand luggage restrictions and Iím not sure if he trusts us with it.
Heís going to Edinburgh so we might take it to Scotland.

Hi Joefrog,

Is this the same place the Toulon fans are welcoming us with cous cous and mint tea?
