Good to see a bit of continuity from the Falcons, injuries or not. Looking forward to seeing Goneva in action from the start.
But, as mentioned, that is a hell of a Saracens side, and pretty much their first choice fifteen, going to be a really really tough game to get a result, but looking forward to seeing how far we have really come along.

Last week Deano said 1-2 weeks for Flood. So hopefully next week

That Saracens team would beat most national teams outside the top 3 or 4 .

But not Bath.

Sarries didn't start with such a strong team against Bath. Farrell only played the last few minutes if not mistaken and Billy Vunipola wasn't even in the team. Just those two add 25% to that Sarries team imo.

Two absolutely world-class players there, to add to an already fantastic team.

Still, our team looks good too so we should be able to give Saracens a pretty good game, and in a 'cup final' scenario, who knows what might happen?

...especially if the fire alarm kept going off through the night.


I wonder if the Sarries team enjoyed their breakfast?

It's like the title winning season when we went toe to toe with Sarries for the title, all over again! Can only but dream.☺

This is the sort of rugby I want to see us playing tonight.
Play at pace like this then I think at least a losing bonus point can come our way.
I just wonder how fit Vunipola is? I can see him running out of juice due to lack of match fitness.
Quite looking forward to it, actually.
This game no dissing Sale and Worcester, will give us an accurate measurement of where we are as a team.
Challenges don't come harder than Sarries and Exeter as far as the AP is concerned, imo. Imagine the belief generated IF we won. I'd say the boys have arrived!

Dam hot over here in Philly. Had a choice of driving from London to watch the game at KP or fly to the States. I took the easy journey and booked a late flight. Come on you Falcons. And of course "Have a nice day"

Hopefully we've flown over Justin the PA. He'd be well suited to fire up the American crowds.

The stadium is empty. Why didn't they offer loads of free tickets to schools, etc etc.

I thought it was supposed to be a promotional game!

Issue is there is no interest. If people where interested they would turn up to watch. The stadium does look very empty like.

Mind you great to hear falcons in such fine voice. Can't hear the sarries lot!

Looking forward to when we are a top four team and the referee (Doyle in particular) calls our players by their first name and referees the opposition only

Re: Team v Saracens
GeordieFalcon 16 September, 2017 23:03
Yeah, constantly hearing the falcons fans!! Great stuff.

I'd like to see us really try and take the ball to them a bit more. We're defending well, but we're putting ourselves under a lot of pressure. We'll concede more next half if we don't change it a little bit ....and I'm aware we're playing a top class side in Saracens.

Re: Team v Saracens
GeordieFalcon 16 September, 2017 23:20
Well as promotional games go...its not going to be gaining any new recruits from the major US sports!

Its woeful!

Re: Team v Saracens
GeordieFalcon 16 September, 2017 23:26
Our penalty count has been very high...most of it in key kickable areas. Farrell is having a field day.

We haven't taken the game to Sarries at all! Very disappointing.

Penalty try and yellow card!!!! Are you kidding me Doyle!!!! Never in a million years!

He really is a "Doyle" for that. Goneva put his two hands out to catch it, no where near a deliberate knock down. Mind you, apart from that I think he's had a good game, we haven't threatened sarries at all errrrr cause we can't keep hold of the ball.

Lads can regroup and go again next week.

Ryan Burrows on the radio reckons the yellow card and penalty try were fair. Sounds like we're being pretty outclassed.

And I still cant work out why JP SOcino has been dropped for Matavesi....
