Dean Richards will hold back till following tomorrow’s match at Leicester before determining whether or not to include to his Newcastle Falcons team. The rugby director has been sheared of midfield numbers following injury enforced retirement of Tane Tu’ipulotu and the conclusion to loan Scotland player Michael Tait to Edinburgh.
Questioned whether or not he would dip in the transfer market, Dean Richards told that it depends on a number of things. He wanted to see how the boys come through the next match and they would decide from there whether or not to look at introducing another body.
Having sanctioned Michael’s come back north of the border that saw the ex under twenty’s cap spread on the sielines against Newport Gwent Dragons. He told that Michael got the scope to go up and play rugby at Edinburgh; therefore, he is up there now on a month’s trial.
He added that this is fantastic from his point of view, and the scope to get some game time in the Rabodirect Pro12 would be great for him.
It is expected that Newcastle would be again without Samoan Jamie Helleur for Aviva Premiership assignment tomorrow at the Welford Road, having been shook in the league opening match against Bath.
Dean Richards told that Jamie suffered a heavy bang to the head. Therefore, he would expect that he would get the full 3 weeks to recover from that. During his absence, Danny Barnes and Adam Powell formed a good looking midfield pack in 15 – 14 win at Sale.
