Richards Content As Falcons Continue Charge

Saturday 20 October 2012

Dean Richards was satisfied with his side’s display in last night’s 34-3 British and Irish Cup triumph over Connacht Eagles, but insists there is room for improvement as the Falcons made it eight wins out of eight in all competitions.

Leading the way in the RFU Championship, Richards’ troops now top Pool 4 of the British and Irish Cup with 10 points to their name, having registered 86 points and conceded just eight.

But Richards is not getting carried away despite the Falcons’ six try blitz in Athlone ahead of the return of Championship rugby against Rotherham Titans at Kingston Park next Friday (kick-off 8pm).

“We could have played a lot better but I’m comfortable with scoring six tries to win the game,” said Richards.

“We expected a hard game and we got that, but the main thing is that we got what we wanted.

“The scrum was powerful but I was a little disappointed with how things went in the midfield, but that happens sometimes.

“It’s two wins from two but there is a long way to go in this competition, and if we pick up a couple of injuries in key positions you never know what’s going to happen so we’ll see,” he added.
