Back-row Chris York is gunning for victory ahead of this Friday’s RFU Championship clash with Plymouth Albion at Kingston Park (kick-off 8pm).
The former Quins hit-man, who joined the Richards revolution last summer, is delighted to be back in the fold after being side lined with a hand injury.
And York, 23, is itching to continue the winning feeling by making it 11 league wins out of 11 against the south coast outfit.
“It’s going to be a big challenge up-front, and we will have to make sure that they don’t bully us around,” said York.
“We have a lot of strength in depth in the back-row at the moment, so from my point of view there is a lot of competition for a starting place – especially with the return of Taiasina Tu’ifua from international duty,” he added.
With the Falcons demonstrating their killer instinct in the pack, York was keen to pay tribute to forwards coach John Wells, saying: “John [Wells] is really bringing a lot to the coaching table, and it’s great to see him getting the very best out of the forwards.
“I’ve just finished a very cold training session, and it’s certainly colder than what it is down south, but it was another enjoyable work-out.”
York returned to action for the trip to Jersey last weekend, as Dean Richards’ men extended their advantage at the top of the table to 13 points.
