Hi guys, just a quickie to mention our next fans' forum on the evening of Weds March 22 at KP.

As usual it's free to attend with unvetted questions from the floor and our panel of Semore Kurdi (chairman), Mick Hogan (MD) and Dean Richards (director of rugby).

All we ask is that you email let us know you're coming so we can gauge the room/bar staff etc for numbers.

Details are here [www.newcastlefalcons.co.uk]

It's your chance to ask the questions you want answering. The forums are typically fun evenings with great insight and humour, and we look forward to seeing you there.

Cheers
Smithy

I'd imagine that the two new signings would be the loosehead from Lyon and Cooper Vuna. I hope that the two new re-signings will be Welsh and Tait.

Wouldn't consider as s raw loosehead from Lyon as a "terrific signing" as mick put it, more of a long term project. I personally hope it's Flood and George Nott from Sale.

We do need a LH though...we're a bit short.

Lockwood - Hopefully starting 1
Vickers - 35 now? Must be managed wisely
Rodgers - Not bad

Brocklehurst - Young academy, work in progress
Trevor - Young academy, work in progress
Chisanga - Switching from back row to LH by all accounts...Work in progress

It just seems as though those two signings are more plausible and sounded like done deals. I can't see it being Flood just yet.

Will be interesting to see who it is, could be Flood and Vuna or that French LH. smiling smiley

Flood would be a great signing but just seems odd having:

Hodgson - 10
Willis - 10 / 12
Conon - 10 / 15
Matavesi (Both) - 10/12
Delayney - 10

That's potentially 5 players who can cover 10 already...so Delayney would have to be on his way.

I appreciate Conon and Willis are both young and unlikely to be starting 10's.

Re: Fans' forum - Weds March 22
Falc Dancer 21 March, 2017 18:45
Delany also covers 15
Willis, Connon also unlikely to be first choice 10 next season so having Flood, Hodgson and Delany with Willis and Connon would be great cover

If we do sign Flood, I would suggest Delany will be off in the Summer.

A LH should be top of the list really. As much as I like Vickers, he's becoming a liability in the scrum and it's something that needs addressing. Lockwood looks very good but we need another option or we'll find ourselves getting bullied like we have for most of this season.

A LH plus Flood would be perfect.
