From the history books: Falcons upset the history books
After going more than 12 years without a win at home to Bath from 2003 to 2016, the Falcons are looking to swoop on a third successive home victory over the Bathplugs this Friday night. A look back at the first win in the sequence back in January 2016:
Walking the Haggis for Doddie
The rugby family. It is an expression that you hear used, but what does it mean? Well this week that became clear, as former Falcons players came from far and wide to make a fifty mile walk from Scotland to Kingston Park, carrying a haggis inside a rugby ball, to raise money and public awareness to support former Scotland and Falcons big man Doddie Weir as he faces up to Motor Neurone Disease.
Falcons in a ditch!
Shocking news from our valiant Falcons as they try to negotiate their way through foreign lands full of foreign people, to play a thoroughly decent and thoroughly British game of respectably violent sport with a funny shaped ball. Those who are familiar with novels about the Cold War years will recognise this for what it is, nothing more than yet another attempt by Vladimir Putin to disrupt honest British people, going peacefully about their own business.
“What is a club in any case?”
“Not the buildings or the directors or the people who are paid to represent it. It’s not the television contracts, get-out clauses, marketing departments or executive boxes.
Two decades of Falcons memories
For something a bit different to read over the festive break, BBC Newcastle Radio summariser Ian Smith recalls his ups and downs with Newcastle Falcons over more than twenty years. Those who have enjoyed his commentaries over the years will know that he knows more about Newcastle Falcons than seems possible. Read on and you will understand why.
Concussions in England's professional rugby union
I thought I’d post this up so we are all a bit more aware of the dangers to our players both in training and during the games Concussion can occur where an individual experiences a minor injury to the head. Commonly occurring in high contact sporting activities; American football, boxing, and rugby. It doesn't have to be something to strike you in the proximity of your brain, but can also be caused by rapid change of movement, giving the skull not enough time to move with your body, causing your brain to press against your skull.
Meeting your rugby icons
What is it about meeting the players that makes them seem like good fella’s? Is it that they are totally comfortable in their own skin and their evident self confidence makes them appear at ease, or is it that they are genuinely nice folks who will be happy to collide on a pitch but then leave that there?
This site is awaiting update…..
Once again the hamster in the wheel that keeps this site alive has been told to stop running. This happens a few times every year, and when it does, I am asked “What’s happened to the message board?” It really is remarkably simple, so if you are all sitting comfortably, we will begin.

Falcons v Irish Preview
Here it is, my last Newcastle Falcons game for three months. I’ve picked a good time to go away haven't I! I'm absolutely blessed to be going away next week, but a part of me is gutted inside that I won't be there to continue to back the boys on the fantastic start to the season they have given us. Let's give them a fantastic backing on Friday, and show how much they mean to us, and how proud they are doing the regions of the North East.
