I noticed the falcons put this out, and to be honest i was actually shocked at some of the stats. If i had been asked, i certainly wouldnt have ome up with them.

I guess it does show, you dont always see everything....

Our hookers are try scoring machines...

I would never have thought Calum played 19 games last season...but it also shows how well Blamire did getting 18. Hes a real classy player.

And lots of debates about our props...but must give Credit...Davison played 17 games! Thats impressive stuff.

Regular readers of the match programme will know these stats are in every single issue, but just thought it would be a nice news story during the longest off-season in professional rugby history.

Think its a great idea Mark.

Adam scored 14 tries, in a 15 match league season (plus cup games) that’s hugely impressive. Cant be very often a hooker is third in a top points scored table either!

Re: Stats from the Championship Season
GeordieFalcon 16 July, 2020 12:06
I think we'll have amongst the best hooker groups in the league...very strong in that area...and Blamire might overtake them all. His potential is unreal...England might look at him!

I havent always been the most praising of Tom Arscott...but the facts dont lie. He's clearly done the business.

Lets hope he can continue that on this season...

8 line breaks from Williams is impressive as he missed a lot of games whilst ill

Re: Stats from the Championship Season
GeordieFalcon 27 July, 2020 10:25
Yeah i noticed that aswell Falc. Hopefully Orlandi or Lucock can offer that line breaking ability in the midfield.

Bear in mind that people commented on those games at the time, saying that we were poor, any Premiership team would take us apart, expose weaknesses etc. In that context this really does highlight the massive gulf between Premiership and Championship teams, if even when apparently off the pace, our boys still come out on top, no matter which way you look at it.

Re: Stats from the Championship Season
GeordieFalcon 27 July, 2020 13:14
Yes, either we improved dramatically this season, or many players found their level.

Maybe Arscott is one of them.

We will only know when we see how they go next season.

But they didn't find their level, they absolutely trounced the Championship players, as the stats show. Even a struggling prem side took them apart, and next season with wallet-busting Sarries taking the tour is going to be a massacre.

GeordieFalcon 28 July, 2020 09:00
But if half the players who performed so well this season flop next season then they DID find their level.

Tom Arscott is one ill be watching very closely,as with a few others...especailly the youngsters. Did great this season...can they step up. Likewise the likes of Mike Daniels at TH. Had a good season...can he replicate it in the prem.

Lots of IF's that will be only answered in a few months time.

Am I being a bit thick here? Aren't these the Falcons' stats?

Unless we have other players in there also then we have no idea who was on top or not.

Also worth noting these include the Cup games. (Edit: the initial stats, cheers Smithy)
