Newcastle Falcons ‘A’ Team have their final outing of the season against the newly reformed Caledonia Reds region of Scotland at Pennypits Sports Complex (kick-off 2pm).
The day is expected to be well attended as the northern most region of Scotland is reborn after several years in the wilderness. Coached by Jason White the Caledonia team played a game last week and will be a stern test for anyone.
Falcons academy head coach James Ponton said: “We know it is going to be a tough test for the boys and we are expecting them to be fully revved up for the game as you would expect in any game between English and Scottish sides. It gives us a great opportunity to see some of the younger lads who are hoping to push into our senior set-up next season alongside some seasoned professionals.”
