Really pleased to see Connon hold on to the 10 shirt. I'll be interested to see how JW goes at outside centre, it'll be a different kind of game than what we're used to with Flood as a second distributor. Good also to see Stevenson back in the 23. Peterson and Robinson is a great pairing, assuming we go up that has to be our no1 second row combo.

Have I missed something on Joel being injured?

It must near impossible to keep all the players happy with game time throughout the season.

Ok, Common must be playing/training well to keep him out! Hopefully he can kick on over the next few months to prep for next season

Itís good that we are now getting consistency in selection and this is starting to translate on the field.

Pirates will be a tough test. Looking forward to watch it on the box.

Do we think the match will be played? Are the pirates already up here? If not travelling today is going to be perilous.

Thanks Mark. Was a bit worried I might have had to go shopping instead!

Forecast is windy, but doesnít seem to be anything weíre not used to. Of course if anything changes weíll communicate via club channels, but thereís no suggestion it will.

Thatís the benefit of a 4G pitch
A few years back I would be worried about the state of the pitch but not anymore
Really looking forward to the game after missing Ampthill although the weather may be a leveller on the day
Team looks strong. Pack looks strong with impact off the bench as well

Pirates have a good fly half, Alvarez, Iíll be interested to see how he goes. Our line speed to close his space will need to be on it

Good to hear the game should be on. I was going to come over but not driving in this crazy wind and after the heavy rain yesterday. Stay safe and enjoy the game everyone!

An absolute joy to watch so far. Just pure domination.

Best half of the season by far. Pirates cannot live with our pace.

And the Mulipola through the legs is among the greatest things Iíve ever seen.

My proudest day as a Falcons fan since we beat Montpellier at home last season. A monumental performance from every single player. My personal highlights were Peterson, Takulua, Williams, Arscott, and most of all Connon who I thought had a real shout for player of the match. What a performance.

Great performance. Amongst many good things I thought flood looked great at inside centre. Really good game vision

Great performance. Thought Williams was immense in defence

Peterson in the forwards
Williams or Arscott in the backs

The rest were very good but one of those three was my man of the match.

Best performance of the season. Intensity dropped a bit in the last 25, but being up 33-0 will do that to you. First half was excellent, Pirates had no clue how to defend anything we did, and couldn't get anything going in attack.

Connon has to keep the 10 shirt now, we look so much faster with him playing, and with Williams and Wacokecoke filling 12-13 we'll finally be able to play at a high pace. Arscott was excellent, him and Hodge sharing 15 for the rest of the season will be fun.

Only quibble would be replacement 9. I know it was last minute, but would rather see N-K or Pascoe given 20 minutes than Hodgson.
