It wasn't just a lesson...he just picked him up and put him in his pocket for the whole game....

Would you take him to SA with England?

Gloucester away it is then......such a strange ruling. They're going to be tough to beat with, I don't think we'll do it twice in one season.

Gary Graham has signed a new contract and we have signed his 19year old brother also...he is a flanker in the same style by all accounts...physical and aggressive and very good at the basics.

I haven't seen Orr play...and I'm a season ticket holder Laugh

The stories I keep hearing is that the young one Guy is potentially better than Gary...so nice move by Deano.
He doesn't half pick up these little rough diamonds...Gary Graham from Jersey..what a sigining.

By the letter of the law he's wrapped the arms. Absolutely minimal effort and with a whole load of shoulder but unless the laws are changed that's fine.

I missed the Strauss one, what's that about?

With Jono Ross also EQ then there's two thirds of a pretty good back row. Throw a Curry in as well and that could do some damage this summer.

Quality match. End to end. Some EQ lads playing well and pushing for summer inclusion. I remember a few years back this fixture on a Friday night would have been a 6-3 snooze fest. This was much more palatable.

Michael Youngs was woeful ...kick kick kick which I can only assume was Deans instructions.

But the ref....poor day at the office...blew us up constantly for off the feet and yet they were coming in from the side, and I lost count how many times they were off their feet yet nothing.

I didn't see that Welly from the stands or the big screen.

Ill need to see the full incident then.

There was bad blood in this game after the Yarde incident and it seemed to blow up twice in the game.

Still not seen the Graham incident...but ive seen the Webber incident. Kneeing on Grahams head whilst raking his face and eyes!
He'll be getting a nice ban aswell. I wonder if that's what kicked it all off later on.

3 of our biggest signings last season haven't been that great (Mavinga, Mermoz and DTH). Although Matavesi has been a real success along with Graham, who'd have thought!

Yeah Matavesi has been very impressive, though I still think he lacks the ball carrying threat that JP Socino does. Socino just seems to make breaks and get us on the front foot.

Gary Graham has been a top signing, and his brother hopefully will be too!

Mavinga has been non existant...and doesn't look explosive at all.

Interesting A team for Sale tonight - notice Jack Payne who is a prop, is playing at 6 (he's 6'5) Ive seen him a few times, and he looks really aggressive and strong, but I guess they're unsure where his best position is.

And lock Max Davies at 8

Newcastle Falcons A-Team v Sale Jets (Monday, 7.30pm, Heywood Road)

Mulipola added, if we can get him in shape and injury free he could be a hell of a signing.

If he matches the impact Goneva has had...then superb.

If we get Davey Wilson up and firing at what he used to be, we'd have a hell of a front row!

1. Logo
2. Cooper
3. Welsh

16. Socino
17. Wilson
18. Lockwood

That would compete against most sides in the AP...possibly even get on top!

Up until recently I would have considered Logo as a LH who can cover TH. However the injuries mean that this season at least I would actually see him as a TH who can cover LH

I think LH will be more straight forward, but I think TH we'll see a bit of rotation.

1 Lockwood
2 Cooper
3 Welsh / Mulipola / Scotty sharing the duties

16 Davison / Vickers
17 Sowery / Socino / Blamire
18 Welsh / Mulipola / Scotty

I'm not so sure GF. With this Tampin lad rumoured to be signing that would leave us with with 3 or 4 options at TH. I think Vickers may retire and Lockwood and Logo will be our LH options rotating through. Scott Wilson has looked to be getting back to some decent form, a pre-season will hopefully help.

Sgt, we have another signing to announce on Saturday.

Its either Williams or Tampin. Everywhere I check I cant find much about the prop...but the only listing I have seen has him as a loosehead...not a tight head.

Checked about 5 games and he was replacement TH....never starting though.

I think Williams will be announced when Irish are relegated.
