Fiji centre Josh Matavesi is among the Falcons' summer signings

Falcons double header set for Saturday August 12

Tuesday 1 August 2017

Newcastle Falcons begin their preparations for the 15-a-side season on Saturday August 12 when they play a double header against Doncaster Knights and Nottingham.

The Doncaster clash gets things underway at 2pm, with fellow Championship side Nottingham providing the opposition in the 4.30pm encounter.

Rugby league side Newcastle Thunder complete the day's entertainment when they host Barrow Raiders in their Super 8s play-off game at 7pm - all three matches included on the same ticket.

Falcons and Thunder season ticket members can gain free entry to the day as part of their package, but must contact the club before August 9 to confirm their seat.

Only the West and East Stands will be open on the day, and every supporter wishing to attend needs to contact the club to be allocated a specific seat. To do this, call 0871 226 6060, email fans@newcastle-falcons.co.uk or visit the ticket office in person.

Non-season ticket members can also take in all three games for just £10 adults and £5 juniors, with a powerful Falcons squad keen to kick on from their strong showing in last weekend's Singha Premiership Rugby 7s. To book call 0871 226 6060, click here or visit Kingston Park during opening hours.

Director of rugby Dean Richards has made a number of key signings following on from the Falcons' highest Aviva Premiership finish in 11 years.

Three-time Premiership winner Toby Flood has returned to the club, where he is joined by triple French Top 14 winner Maxime Mermoz, Fijian international pair Josh Matavesi and Tevita Cavubati and Yorkshire Carnegie captain Ryan Burrows, to name just a few.
