    Nah he's not a 10... He's a FB primarily and wing second...but his pace is electric. He'll be Englands full back without doubt. Maybe needs a bit of beef on his very lean frame..but im sure Rob Baxter will sort that out.

    This has been on the cards for months and months..so it was the worst kept secret. Whilst we are realistic that we would never keep him, this is the one that could end Deans reign as manager. Pretty much to the man, there are some seriously unhappy falcons fans about the whole way the club is...

    [2020 Six Nations] England Squad

    I agree...i dont get it. Surely better to go: 6 Curry 7 Underhill 8 One of Earl / Ludlum / Hill (if he can play 8)

    [2020 Six Nations] England Squad

    I see for the first game due to lack of prep time, its being suggested a back row of... 6 Lawes 7 Underhill 8 Curry

    That is a trait that Eddie likes...aggression.

    So what do you think made Jones pick Earl over Simmonds? They're very similar.

    [2020 Six Nations] England Squad

    Im not sure OH. He's getting an idea of expectations, training intensity, etc etc at this level. Im not sure it puts any further expectations on him that are not there already. I would say young winger Adam Radwan who is with us, is under more pressure to his consistently outstanding...

    [2020 Six Nations] England Squad

    Josh Hodge is a FB who can play equally well on the wing. He has been used on the wing for the England age grades and he got his first competitive start for us on Sunday v Leeds and scored and played very well. The lad is going to be a superb full back, though sadly i probably wont see him in a...

    Do you think Kpoku is a good signing for Saints? He looks a big unit...

    Aw well...you might see him start to develop now. If Baxter can bring get him to impose himself on the games as he should...then boy you'll have some lock.

    Transfers rumours

    I heard Witty has been injured...is that correct? The general feeling up here at the falcons was that he is a big guy, with a lot of power and great pace for a lock...but doesnt impose himself physically on a game as he really should. He has the ability to be a huge carrier, big defender etc...

    Kibirige is the main one that most are unhappy with. But its also the likes of Radwan, Conon, Charlie Wilson who barely played a game last season, etc etc

    2019-2020 transfers

    I think its because we have 3/4 extremely talented young wingers coming through and they fear Vuna is going to take their place and halt their development. But you need balance and ultimately we need to make sure we get straight back up. We've lost Goneva so Vuna is a direct replacement. We've...

    Transfers rumours

    Goneva has left us...contract expired and has not been renewed. We have 4 incredibly talented young wingers comng through. Sinoti there but starting to be injury prone and 35, and Vuna is just a cheap replacement for Goneva. Its all about getting straight back up, whilst developing the players...

    Been received with mixed reviews. And Goneva confirmed to be away also. Mark Wilson has signed for Sale in a one year loan deal.

    Looks like Zach Kibirgie is off to Wasps.

    2019-2020 transfers

    He'll be an interesting one to watch. He's a really big unit, very powerful and he's got an insane turn of speed. The biggest criticism the falcons fans had, was that he didnt seem to be able to use his power and speed enough. He should be a huge carrier, and really be a powerhouse in the tight...
