Fiji fly-half Ben Volavola

Bordeaux-Begles name 29-man squad for Falcons trip

Thursday 7 December 2017

Fiji fly-half Ben Volavola has been named in Bordeaux-Begles' 29-man squad for Saturday's European Challenge Cup trip to Newcastle Falcons.

The 26-year-old is an international team-mate of Newcastle Falcons wing Vereniki Goneva, and has been registered by Bordeaux this week in place of the injured Simon Hickey.

Other players travelling in Bordeaux's 29-man group include former Bath back-rower Leroy Houston, ex-Sale prop Vadim Cobilas and France prop Sébastien Taofifenua.

Bordeaux-Begles will be out to avenge the 21-20 home defeat they suffered at Stade Chaban Delmas when the Falcons travelled there in round two of the competition, with former England back-row Joe Worsley among their coaching party.

Saturday's 3.15pm kick-off is included in the 2017-18 season ticket membership package. Non-season ticket members can book by clicking here, calling 0871 226 6060 or buying from the ground in person. Book before match day to get the best price.
