Ex-Falcon Wilson: Timing is everything

BRENT Wilson says his return to Kingston Park for the first time since leaving Falcons is ideally timed for the high-flying Green and Whites.

Wilson fendNottingham's captain (pictured) spent the best part of his professional sporting life in Newcastle, suiting up more than 100 times for the former Premiership club.

While the flanker might feel as though he has stepped into the twilight zone when he pushes through the doors of the away changing rooms, he could not imagine better circumstances to take on the competition front runners.

"We are second on the table coming off a huge win over Bristol, so the timing is perfect really," Wilson said.

"I just want to make sure that when we go up there we go with the belief that we can come away with something."

It is with pride in his voice that Wilson recalls just how tough breaching the Kingston Park fortress is for visiting sides.

The 31-year-old insists it will take everything that Nottingham threw at Bristol and more to ruffle the Falcons feathers.

"They are at home and they are always tough at home," Wilson said.

"When I was there, so much emphasis and pride went into defending home turf and beating anyone that made the journey. They stand as a huge test for us and they would have taken note of our result at the weekend and our position on the table.

"We have to be at our best and lift a notch from last week."

As for how motivated the ex-Falcon favourite is for the storming his old fort, Wilson said there isn't anywhere in the ground that won't stir his emotions.

"I know Kingston Park better than any ground I've been to, I know where the fans are, which supporters sit where almost," Wilson said.

"There are a lot of guys that I look forward to playing against after playing a lot of rugby with them.

"It will be interesting to see good mate Tane Tu'ipulotu out there, then there is Jimmy Gopperth, Jon Golding, who has been going pretty well, and Bobby Vickers is another good guy that I've played a lot of rugby with."
