Re: Falcons v Irish Preview

No disrespect taken, as said above, I'd hope both teams were aiming for a 5 point win.

I'm genuinely pleased for Falcons uprising in the past few seasons, what's most pleasing about it is that it seems to be done "right" i.e. pick players that work for you within a reasonable budget and train as a squad. How ever it was done it does seem to be working and that's pleasing.

That's not going to stop me hoping we take the wheels off your racing chariot tomorrow but that's to be expected.

Nice preview - particularly like the understanding of where Irish as a club is and how they got there.

Slight corrections: last week's game was against Sale - the Exeter game was the previous week. Not that it matters the effect was much the same. Although in neither game did we allow 40 points past us (37 and 36... ah, fair enough).

Good luck for the rest of the season (tomorrow and New Year excepting).
