Premiership North: Leicester Falcons vs Tamworth Phoenix, 1300
The Broadcasts will get underway at 1300 when the Leicester Falcons look to build on their crucial home victory over the Edinburgh Wolves last weekend, but will certainly have their work cut out for them!
They take on a Tamworth Phoenix side that’s not only comfortably bested the Falcons once already this year, but are likely to come into this game particularly phocused following their disappointing outing against the Manchester Titans last week – a 0-21 defeat that’s their first loss since 2015, and their first shutout since… Urr, still looking that up! But it’s been a while.
When the two teams last faced one another it took a while to sound each other out – the sides appearing fairly evenly matched… if only for the first quarter.
As the game ground on, the tide turned for the Phoenix and they began racking up a very healthy margin of victory, the Falcons only finally finding paydirt deep into the fourth when the game was well out of reach.
The home side will be very aware that a third win would likely go a long way to securing their place in the Premiership for 2020, while Tamworth come into Week Eleven all too aware that a second loss on the season could well cost them their Northern Crown!
