Especially as Ealing play Newcastle on the 21st! Given the hot water I'm in with the wife for moving our flights abroad at Christmas to let me catch the game, it better still be relevant!

Great first match at the Mennaye yesterday on the newly laid pitch and in unseasonal warm weather.
In truth the margin could have been wider as three Pirates placekicks hit the post.
Ealing seemed a bit devoid of ideas when it became clear that the one-outpower game wasn’t working. The half time replacements made a difference and they enjoyed much more possession in the second half, with only a very well taken individual try to show for it.
Bit disappointing to hear James Lowes’ expletive riddled rant at home supporters late in the first half.

Lowes did nothing but moan, whinge and rant at all and sundry for the whole game. Nothing wrong with a bit of passion, but he was out of order. Hope he enjoyed the long trip home.

Who is James Lowe? Is he the NZ player?

No - he's the unsuccessful Yorkshire Carnegie coach who Ealing brought in for some reason. He isn't even listed as the Head Coach - slightly unclear what his role is to me, but I'm embarrassed to hear that he didn't comport himself well.

Ealing has had massive trouble finishing at the try line for some time now. Per my analysis of the Ampthill game, most of their tries were coming from open play, but when they were near the line they couldn't find their way through the majority of the time. I don't know what the answer is, but it isn't to just keep canonballing into the defense. That just leads to Jordy Reid coughing up the ball.

Good for us but bad move by Ealing not to start Burns for this game, He ran the show at the Mennaye last season and scored three tries. His try yesterday was the best move by Ealing the whole game but by then  Pirates were  all but home and dry.

Googled James Lowes. Spent most of his career in Rugby League playing at Leeds Rhinos and Bradford Bulls. Very little on his CV involving his experience in Rugby Union. Perhaps that explains his Frustration/Rants on Sunday. Ealings DOR Ben Ward gave a good summary of the game on their website.

From the twitter feed on the match it looks like a couple of sloppy restarts gifted the Pirates scrums in the centre of the pitch from which they scored tries on both occasions. Not to take away anything from what was very much a top class performance by the Pirates!

Newcastle did not renew Evan’s contract following his short term deal, so he was a free agent.
