Very strong and very experienced side. Nice to see the return of the World Cup players being integrated into the side. At the same time I would still like to see some of the less experienced players having a proper run out.
I know we want to win every game, the league and the cup. Quite rightly. I just want our young backs in particular to be Premiership players next year. If they arenít to be trusted in the Championship Cup I donít know when they will be trusted.
Should be a good convincing victory and despite my whinge I am looking forward to it.

Iím looking forward to it, such a strong squad for a cup game, I though DR may have rested the majority of the squad but he hasnít, should be a good night under the lights!

Game of two halves, referee was a bit questionable. First half performance seemed pretty dire but the second half much better! Hopefully the injury to Cooper Vuna isnít too bad!

The ref had refereed the county cup final in Alnwick last night.
maybe two games in a row was two much for him as he made some odd decisions.

However the game...and im sorry if im a broken down record player but.....yes another big scoreline and a win but that was an awful game until the last 20 when they got tired and we scored points. Lets forget Floods performance before he went off.

A good premier side would put a cricket score on them...and if we think playing like that will win games in the prem...then we need to rethink...

We do have some talented players...and some of the youngsters could be great but the tactics are awful.

Flattering scoreline with Hartpury tiring and making errors in the last quarter. The Falcons must have knocked-on about 20 times. Poor performance compared to the Coventry game.

As above, after 50 or 60 minutes the score was 15-10 and was looking like a real banana skin.
Why should we forget Toby? His 2 kicks before he went off were dreadful attempts and similar to the season so far.

Simply awful to watch at times before Hartpury part timers tired and the tries came , some of the players didnt know what was going on during some of the plays and you wouldn't think that they spent so much time training and rehearsing moves together and as said the scoreline didnt reflect how a lot of the game had gone. Cooper Vuna looked in a lot of pain when he went off I fear his second game for Falcons will not be for some time.

Hartpury put everything into defence in first half. Falcons started by playing like it was going to be an easy game and on past evidence this was a reasonable stance. As for handling errors it was a bit chill out there and I suspect even plastic pitches aren't immune from being frozen.

But, you know me. A fifty pointer, ten wins out of ten. Happy Xmas.
