Once again not having a No10 on the bench killed us.

Hooper needs to go. The experiment of employing a inexperienced DOR is not working.

Not a good couple of minutes for Gary Graham, he needs to be careful, could be looking at a YC if he commits too many more.

Agreed. Seen those carded many times. Though in general the number of yellow cards given for 'deliberate knock ons' frustrates me those are usually carded with how strict refs have been on it.

If refs are becoming more lenient then I think it will be good in the long run but as always when reffing interpretations change it will feel like there an inconsistencies.

I just turned on for Harris smashing Connon. How has the first half been?

Entertaining first half, Falcons have kept the ball in hand a little too much at times (did I ever think I would say that again?!). Gloucester have looked quite disjointed at times.

Radwan scored a very good try (almost length of the field). Falcons second was a cheeky run from the back of the ruck (defence seemed to melt away). Gloucester hit back with a good drive from the lineout.

Gloucesters defence has been petty good. Evn match so far.

Hindsight and all that, but I think Falcons should have kicked the three points at the end of the first half.

I agree, all I want as a fan is consistency in this area. Some refs seem to reach for the pocket straight away, whilst others seem very reticent to do so.

Agreed Cumbrian. In a game with so many different potential infractions it's always been an issue for rugby.

It's been a scrappy second half but Falcons are clinging in there.

This should be an exciting final 20!

Wow. That was some shove from Gloucter.

Jamal Ford-Robinson has seemed a somewhat unfulfilled talent to me. That was a huge scrum straight after replacing Balmain.

He's always seemed talented and is a hell of an athlete for his size. Just never quite settled at a club.

The Argentinian signings are looking good for Falcons.

Brutal for Gloucester to lose the LBP.

I've said it many times but Radwan impresses me every time I see him play. He really does look a future England winger.

McGuigan had an excellent game off the bench too.

Radwan merked Jonny May again in the build up to that.   Very Happy

Good win for Falcons, but Gloucester really are less than the sum of their parts at the moment.

Ben Stevenson was class on the other wing. He never gets any recognition. Hes fast, scores tries, has a rock solid defence and hes tough.
He made a try saving tackle again.

That's me half paying attention whilst the niece and nephew bounce off the walls  Laugh  cheers GF.

Grondona is meant to be a bit of a unit so will provide good competition for Graham who has been excellent so far this season. Hopefully Graham will get a Scotland recall because his form is deserving.

The scrums have been an absolute disaster in the Exeter vs Bristol game so far. Hardly a completed scrum in 30 minutes, Williams and Woolmore have been simultaneously sin binned after another collapse.

I've got a lot of sympathy for Karl Dickson in games like this.

We have rediculous options in the back row. Ironically Sean Robinson my favorite lock is keeping that 6 spot his own. Hes been outstanding.
Grondona is 6'4 to 6'6 depending on where you here. So yes wol be interesting to see how he goes.

And that young Carerras brother is only 5'6 but a 7s live wite in the back 3 apparently.

But you can't take the two locks out

Sinckler extremely lucky not to see red if his screamed "are you f***ing kidding me" was directed at the ref. Dickson seemed to think it was.

LCD also lucky not to see yellow for his no arms tackle in my opinion. Chiefs make a lot of those tackles just diving at players ankles and it goes unpenalised so often. Really frustrates me.

That's a brilliant bit of play by Sam Simmonds to prevent a try.

Wonderful work by Lloyd to create the break as well. The young Welshman has a big future.

Sinckler should be cited. That's an appalling example to set.

Sam Simmonds outstanding. Running down Randall is no mean feat.
