"There were some good results by the young guys who stepped up, such as Rory Clegg, Ollie Lindsay-Hague and Dave Moore.
"This Friday night's game is very important. It is the first of two games in a row against our Northern rivals and we want to make sure that on the final whistle, we have the upper-hand.
"We have spoken with the players about the importance of this game and how valuable the win will be to us in our campaign to stay in the top 4 of the Aviva Premiership Rugby table. We have one week goals and will think about the next game against them once Friday is over.
"They are strong up-front, scrummage well and their 9 and 10 partnership works very well.
"Newcastle will be on a high from their win on Sunday and we will be expecting them to be looking to recreate that result on Friday; something we will be determined not to let happen."
