Poor performance in attack from both sides, defensively both solid sides.

Every 50/50 went to the home side and I thought the ref was terrible anyway if you're poor and you still grind out a win away, you will find yourself at the right end of the table come the end of the season.

1-2 years ago we would have blown that game and lost by 9+ points,through stupid errors and giving away kickable penalties. It shows how far they've come as a group. The leadership and will to win is there to see. I honestly didn't fear Sale scoring a try tonight as I thought the lads can dig in and claw it back if needed.

Yes Sale were unlucky with the drop over the line, but other than that they offered little and never threatened. I thought our defence was solid and strong. We for once played the referee. Now many on here wil say it's not in the spirit of the game. How many times have teams come to Kingston Park and done it to us? For too long we have been "honest and nice", yes we were miles offside but you play to the whistle, penalties were kept to a minimum in kicking range and given away where the opposition can't hurt you very savvy to do that.

I will take a win any way it comes so well done Falcons on to the USA.

I believe it's the best time to play Saracens get it over with early in a season on a neutral ground with our so called stars back fit you just never know. It's a one off cup final style game with both teams traveling so we could spring a big shock.
