Wilson: We’re still fighting

Wednesday 17 April 2019 Written by: Adam

The Falcons host Northampton Saints on Friday April 26 in a 7.45pm kick-off, Wilson insisting the quest is still very much alive despite the seven-point gap between Newcastle and Worcester Warriors.

“The important thing is that we’re in a scrap now, and we’ve got to get up and carry on fighting,” said the England flanker.

“We’re still in the fight – make no mistake about that.

“We can still have a big effect on what happens, it’s vital we remember that and the thing we have control over is how we play in our last three games.

“Obviously now there’s an element of seeing what happens in other matches, but we’re doing everything possible to take care of our own end to make sure we push it right down to the wire.

“We’re sticking in, and we won’t give up.

“The moment you start moping around and feeling sorry for yourself is when you get into trouble, but the boys are refreshed now and getting back into our match prep for Northampton.”

Tickets for the Northampton game are on sale by [**clicking here**][1], Wilson insisting the Falcons faithful are a major asset to the players.

“Any team in the Premiership can talk about how good it is to play at home, but I think up here at Kingston Park it’s really something else – especially on a Friday night,” he said.

“I thought the support for the Leicester game was incredible, and even after the game following a really disappointing narrow loss our supporters were great with the players.

“They didn’t get on our backs, they showed they’re sticking with the boys and it really does mean so much to us to know we have them on our side.

“I know this year has been a bit of a blip and I can understand why our fans will be disappointed, but I’m confident we will get back on the horse against Northampton and keep it going.”
