The Falcons play in robes of dark grey and white with a falcon emblem on the chest. They are known for their fierce and violent style of play. In fact, they are so violent, that the team motto is: Let us win, but if we cannot win, let us break a few heads. The Broadmoor brothers, Karl and Kevin, who played as Beaters between 1958 and 1969, were suspended on no less than fourteen occasions due to persistent rule-breaking.
The Broadmoor brothers played as Beaters.
On June 1st the Falcons lay at the bottom of the League with 350 points. Their next match was against the Chudley Cannons (who were themselves bottom of the League earlier in the season) at Exmoor. The Cannons won the match. This caused the Cannon's manager Ragmar Dorkins to collaps with shock.

Behind the scenes
The team motto is a likely reference to the motto for the Special Olympics: "Let me win. But if I cannot win, let me be brave in the attempt."
