STARTING XV:
15 Anthony Watson
14 Chris Ashton
13 Matt Scott
12 Jimmy Gopperth
11 Harry Potter
10 Freddie Burns
9 Ben Youngs (vc)
1 James Cronin
2 Charlie Clare
3 Dan Cole (vc)
4 Harry Wells
5 Eli Snyman
6 George Martin
7 Hanro Liebenberg (c)
8 Sean Jansen

REPLACEMENTS: Tom Horton, Joe Taufete’e, James Whitcombe, Francois van Wyk, Will Hurd, Nephi Leatigaga, Finn Carnduff, Lewis Chessum, Cameron Henderson; Sam Edwards, Richard Wigglesworth, Bryce Hegarty, Phil Cokanasiga, Kini Murimurivalu, Nemani Nadolo, Hosea Saumaki, Jed Walsh

It is a strong side. Worrying absentees in the backrow and no sign yet of Kelly. Replacement backs have some impact. If the Jersey friendly is anything to go by then expect changes after about 30 mins, particularly the front row.

Sorry, yes meant to say it's being streamed for free on the Tigers website. It won't be anything fancy, probably a one camera job with Radio Leicester commentary but free sport on a Friday night isn't a bad thing.

Pretty rusty from both sides so far. You're number 14 is an idiot, complete liability. Could have been two reds were it not a pre season game.

Ah just got in Sam last minute night out.

There were some good bits for Falcons. Ben Stevenson was excellent, when he moved across to cover fullback he was even better, really is a case of get him on the ball. Your new Welsh flyhalf lacked control but looks very quick and kicked very well off the tee. Madison the hooker was a stand out for you in the first half, McGuigan got picked off a bit at the lineout in the second half. Your two young 9s both showed up better than Mickey Young and there were some signs that you might actually have a bit of shape to your attack though pre season is hard to judge.

Yeah just checked the unoffy and generally the views are positive. Looks like they are genuinely trying to play faster and open it up and give the ball to our exciting backs. Stevenson is a good player, we missed him all last season.

The new Fijian lad had a mare but by all accounts is a good player so hopefully he'll learn.

I'm still very positive for the season ahead..

Understatement. Played 21 minutes of which 10 were in the sin bin. The two instances he was involved were the two yellow cards and either could have easily been red had their been a TMO. It might be he goes to the Championship for a month or so to help his adjustment because he looked a complete liability.

Hard to read too much into pre season games but does look positive for Falcons so far.

Im going to watch the full game on Youtube through the week but fortunately 13 / wing is one position we have plenty of quality, so we can afford time to address the issues...

Was pleased to see our two Argentinians Moroni and Orlando beating the AB's as a centre combo.

I agree preseasons are about match fitness etc, not too read too much, but from the highlights ive seen so far...a few times we attacked...they actually did so at pace with purpose. That follows up what Carl Fearns said in an interview last week that they're training hard, and when its on and they go....they go like at full tilt. Thats what we've been crying out for, for years...especially when you have the pace in the backs that we have.

Stevenson and Stephens both looked sharp against us last weekend, makes sense to retain them in what looks a pacey backline. Get Earl coming off his wing like he did Vs us and that could work nicely for you.

Any news on a ban for your Fijian winger?

No not heard anything yet about the ban.

Yeah Stevenson is great to have back fit. Quality young player. Stephens ive mentioned many times over the last few seasons. Ive always said i see him as a 15..and thats where hes began this season with Penny unavailable.

Looking forward to hearing how Brantingham goes at loosehead. Even England will be watching his development this season.

Strangely though the one i really want to produce his best is Lucock at 12. Hes the type of unflashy tough fulcrum who can really help our backline. Ive seen him put in some very impressive performances, and yet too inconsistently. If he can really find his top level consistently...he'll be a great platform to allow those around him show up more. We shall see how he goes Walders instructions rather than Deans.

Two rolling maul tries. Good to see that, I always think that the rolling maul is a basic skill and if you have a limited budget it has to be a go to move.

Falcons seem to have a bit more about them this season though consistency is an issue. Not for Carreras though, 6 tries in 6 Prem games is a pretty handy record.

It's not going to be overnight but I actually think Walder is making the changes. Certainly seeing elements of improvements. But as you say still inconsistent..

At least he's playing the kids now at 19/29/21 not holding them back till they're much older like Dean was guilty of doing too much

Couldn't make the game as It was my night shift with the new arrival...but apparently young Pepper should have been MOTM.  A genuine talent and out and out 7 .
