When you are given no chance of winning a game it is a fantastic memory when that proves to be wrong. In that respect, two games against almighty Bath come to mind. Our first match ever in the Premiership and, obviously, our success at HQ in 2005. Never, ever been beaten in a final, well, by the evening of the 16th April, they were!

April 2011, Kingston Park, Falcons 29-30 Leeds

Leeds coming from behind to give ourselves a chance of Premiership survival.

The lead changed hands 3 times in the last 5 or 6 mins with an Adrian Jarvis drop goal settling it.

Beating Leicester the first time. Beating Leicester the second time.

And, of course, the evening game against Quins.



If I had all the money I've spent on drink ..... I'd spend it on drink.

We gave ourselves a chance - and if wed only managed to stretch about another 6 inches or so for the 4th try down at Saints wed have stayed up .......

Yep, another of those moments that could've completely changed our destiny, like the play off game Vs Welsh that you mentioned in the article.

If only! And that game at FG could easily have been in the top 3 if we had. As it was watching the first 30 minutes I thought I was dreaming ......

Missed this game due to an Achilles rupture but listened on Radio Leeds. Northampton V Leeds. Three unanswered trys by Leeds only to loose out in the end. A single bonus point was needed, and denied. Tragic!

The Northampton game when we lost after scoring 3 tries in first 30 mins. Stood with Northampton fans who were as gutted as we were. We were camped on Saints line at end and just couldnt score...what could have been

Moseley away when we were promoted with a loss for, I think, Bedford which promoted us is also a good memory

My memories do not go as far back as most on here but a couple of my best are Jonah Holmes 70 metre try in first minute against Bedford and the Rotherham game when we had a bonus point after 9 minutes.. Does anyone remember Joe Ford scoring a try at Hull Ionians in brilliant sunshine and taking the conversion in a blizzard.
