Surprised there's been no build up to it on the forum, so to start discussion, give your predictions for who will be in the final in the poll.

What's the rationale behind Goneva, Sinoti and Cooper not being registered?

Interesting pack selection for Glaws, but it's a hell of a strong bench to call upon. I'm thoroughly looking forward to this one and as long as we don't gift 2 soft tries and actually manage to kick at least one goal, we should have enough to win this... Lightning can't strike twice can it? Shocked

Lightning can't strike twice can it?

Forty-one years after his debut in the “Guinness Book of World Records,” Ranger Roy Sullivan continues to hold the dubious distinction of being struck by lightning more than any known person. Not twice. Not three times.

Seven times.


Not that'll happen this Friday - I think Deano's got his eye on the Leicester game - although that's a canny bench for the Falcons.

I've finally learnt something useful from this forum! Poor old Roy, what an unfortunate person he was. His wiki page is definitely worth a read https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roy_Sullivan

Back to the rugby, I am strangely confident about this one, which will mean we'll lose...

Right now Roy seems more interesting. I loved the detail about how he started to carry water around with him to put out a fire on his head after the 4th hit...
