I thought we were fantastic 1st half and put the game to bed and then probably eased of a tad but what can you do ? Can only get 5 points from a game tbf.

i Know its not pretty but guess theyre doing their job well and i think we'll go unbeaten.

I think it was the Amphhill 1st try in the second half, a lineout near the south stand, the referee stops play before the ball is thrown in and warns the falcons about something. On resuming play the lineout is set again, referee gives a penalty against us, taken quickly and they score.
I take it that we ignored the referees warning and committed the same offence?
This 7 points and the interception pass in our 22 we were guilty of shooting ourselves in the foot at times.

There were 2 elements to it.

He asked the Falcons to come up to the line and maintain the gap
He also asked our Hooker to step to his right and into the gap.

They didnít
So he stopped play and told them to do it.

They didnít so he penalised us for it.



The ref and touch judges were excellent in their communications all game both between themselves and what they were telling the players.

Sorry, I know this is a bit off topic and itís honestly not a moan about youngsters getting a game! Was reading something at work when on my lunch about our promising youngsters (of which thereís a lot) and Josh Basham was mentioned.

I remember when he signed him it was quite a coup and LIrish supports werenít over pleased however I donít recall seeing his name this season. Is he completing his studies this season? Just wondering.

Josh is at Durham Uni and trains around his studies. Played for our seconds the other week in Melrose.

Itís all about individual management and nurturing where the younger players are concerned for me.
The management see them day in day out and Iím sure that they will introduce them to some game time as they feel appropriate when they are ready.

Thanks Smithy. Like I say, it wasn't a moan I was just suddenly aware I hadn't seen his name for a while.
