The lack of regular competitive rugby is not helping especially for the A team as the Premiership Shield is a miss, not to mention the European competition that would help to bring on the younger players as the standard is so much higher than playing Scottish second division reserve teams. Relegated Premiership teams should still be able to take part in the A league surely especially if the Championship teams cant provide A team competition as this would have helped dramatically this season for a lot of Falcons players.

Ater the last 14/15 months when the negativity started it is obvious that Dean Richards isnt going anywhere and it is also obvious that the style of play isnt going to change as it is winning us every game (even though it is horrific to watch). So what is the solution - well the only solution i can see now is to hope that we can wrap up this league asap to give the maximum time for recruitment (to be able to attract the players we want) for next year. I think the best and most positive situation is to go undefeated, wrap this up by March 28th (after Ealing game) which would give us the final five games to able to sort out the dead wood in the squad and look to the future without having to care about the league.

I am sure Semore will come up with the goods given what we have lost over the last two years and please no more of these Owen type signings as they are really not worth it as we have better in the academy already.
