Newcastle Falcons announce their match day squad for the visit of Exeter Chiefs this weekend.
As Newcastle Falcons prepare to take on Exeter Chiefs at Kingston Park this Sunday the club have announced a team which features two changes from the side that faced Wasps last Sunday.
Last year’s players’ player of the season Alex Tait will start at Full Back playing alongside Samoan international Sinoti Sinoti and Noah Cato, whose last game for the Falcons saw him pick up a try against former team Northampton Saints.
Completing the back line are Gonzalo Tiesi and Adam Powell in the Centre, Juan Pablo Socino at 10 and last weekend’s scorer Ruki Tipuna at Scrum Half.
The pack remains unchanged from that which travelled to Adams Park last Sunday with Kieran Brookes, Scott Lawson and Scott Wilson comprising the Front Row and former Leeds pair Calum Green and Dom Barrow making their third starting appearance together in the Falcons’ Second Row. Mark Wilson, Ally Hogg and captain Will Welch complete the pack.
The Falcons include two changes among their replacements for Sunday’s game with Mike Blair and Tom Catterick moving onto the bench in place of Warren Fury and Alex Tuilagi.
Tickets are still available for Sunday’s game starting from only £15 for adults. For more information or to get yours call 0871 226 6060 or click here.
