Club and country at Kingston Park on Saturday

Tuesday 1 February 2022

Saturday is rugby day at Kingston Park Stadium, with club and country combining in an enticing double bill.

Newcastle Falcons Under-18s are in action at 2pm when they host Yorkshire Under-18s in their final home game of the Academy League season.

Entry and parking are free, with the East Stand's Tap & Tackle bar open from 12 noon.

As well as watching the best young rugby talent in the North East and Cumbria there is a double helping of Six Nations action on the TVs in the bar.

The Calcutta Cup clash between Scotland and England will be shown live in the Tap & Tackle with a 4.45pm kick-off, with the bar also showing the Ireland v Wales game at 2.15pm.

Newcastle Falcons academy head coach James Ponton said: "We had a really good turn-out of supporters for our last Under-18s home game against Worcester a couple of weeks ago, and we had some great feedback from the fans I spoke to about how much they enjoyed the day.

"We play a fast, open brand of rugby, and we're coming into it on the back of victories against Worcester and Sale Sharks.

"As well as our own game there's obviously the chance to stay on and watch England's game up at Murrayfield on the TVs in the Tap & Tackle bar, and it should be a great day out for anyone who loves their rugby."
