I think that's enough to put my heart at rest Smithy. Okay it looked bad at the new season unveiling being the only team with no sponsor, but sometimes negotiations can take long. I will be happy to wait if it means we get a better deal. In the end I think it's just about communicating what's going on so fans are in the loop.

I want to buy the new shirt but I've been waiting for a sponsor so my shirt doesn't look blank. I know some prefer it that way but not here. We got a good deal out of Philadelphia, which quite a few people moaned about. I think we just need to trust those in the know that plans are afoot to get us where we need to be.

It's just unfortunate that we're talking about sponsorship a week into the new season. I hope lessons can be learned for the future.

On the rugby front I like the piece by Richards in the chronicle about where we're going. And agree with his points. Forget the preseason and look forward.

We now have a squad to be competing in the middle of the pack rather than worrying about relegation. And you get the feeling everyone wants to be near the top and it's that belief that I believe will get us to the next level.

The only question mark remain in the front row. But that's a wait and see situation. I'm sure there should be money to bring in a seasoned campaigner if none of the new boys step up.
Let's back the team on Friday wherever you are, which for me unfortunately/fortunately will be in Mernoca.

Let's set the tone for the season ahead. This is the most balanced we've been for years, and generally good quality too. The most depth I've known for sure.
C'MON Falcons! I say. And no happy pills here...
