The squad for the next batch of premiership games were always likely to be included after having two games not playing. Would like to see Simoti vs Cokanasiga at some time.

Wow!! That's near enough our strongest squad. It would be nice to lay down a marker for the Harlequins game. Really excited by that squad. Shame no Radwan or Kibirige. Otherwise exciting team. Nice to see Flood back.

Chris Harris on the bench for Scotland. Cavubati and Goneva starting for Fiji.

Radwan and Kibrige still have some work to do in my opinion.

Probably more so in the case of Zach as he is undoubtedly very good in an attacking sense but still very average to poor defensively.

Both still young so plenty of time for improvement.

A very exciting team for tomorrow...

Zach is better in defence than Radwan IMO
Zach picked up an injury after the Exeter game, no idea why Radwan is not involved though

Both Pedro & Chris Harris featured in Flat's team of the week last week

Zack and Adam not a first team pick at this moment in time for me.
As I commented earlier I feel they both have some work to do.
I can see Adam making the step up before Zack based on his overall game.
Only time will tell I guess.

Bath fans seemed underwhelmed by their selection. Hope there's no complacency. The last time I thought we might out a team away was the Sale game and, given what happened then, I'm predicting a 0-0 draw.

That's a good looking 23. Deano & Co must be looking at this as a warm-up for getting back into the league games.

Zach & Radwan are in that tricky spot of being ready for 1st team games, but lacking experience. It's only going to get solved by them getting more experience. I expect them to dot in & out of the weekly 23 as the season goes on but not regular starters for some time.

Falcons taking the opportunity to warm up first teamers for renewal of Premiership activities and hopefully not putting the kiss of death on this, going for the 5 points against Bath

Will has had the knee brace on since the Montpellier game, Sean Robinson is however walking freely without any major strapping etc and has been for the last few weeks around Jesmond sohopefully back around the squad soon

I saw Sami with a moon boot on his right foot tonight, that doesn’t bode well

A disappointing game. The Falcons need to be a lot better next week.

Yeah but in fairness the conditions were pretty poor. Lashing it down , very windy ..not great.

I thought Andrew Davidson had a good game. He played some very good link stuff. He seemsed to stand out on the wing a hell of a lot mind...wonder if that was a tactic.

What happened to the scrum in the second half?
Really good first half, changed the front row and everything fell to pieces.
