Harrison Orr drafted into Singha 7s squad

Wednesday 27 July 2016

Harrison Orr will make his Newcastle Falcons debut in Saturday's Singha Premiership 7s at Kingston Park Stadium after the club named a revised squad.

The former Australia Under-20s back-row forward, signed this summer from Greene King IPA Championship club Ealing, replaces fellow new arrival Andrew Davidson.

The other change to Newcastle's previously-announced squad comes in the backs, where a broken arm sustained in training sees Tom Penny miss out.

He is replaced by Adam Radwan, the teenage winger who joined the Falcons in their training camp at Bishop Burton College this week. The Billingham RFC flyer has spent time in the Falcons' academy and has already caught the eye on the invitational sevens circuit.

Saturday's Singha 7s starts at 3pm and sees the Falcons pooled with Sale Sharks, Worcester Warriors and Leicester Tigers in round-robin action. The top two teams on the day will progress through to the finals at Coventry's Ricoh Arena on Sunday August 7.

Tickets for Saturday's event at Kingston Park are available priced £20 for premium seating, £10 for standard seating and £5 for under-16s. A 'sevens heaven' deal is also available for £100 which includes seven standard tickets plus 7 x £10 vouchers to be redeemed on the day against food, drink, merchandise or programmes.

Falcons season ticket members are entitled to two free tickets for the Singha 7s, which must be claimed by 1pm on Friday by calling 0871 226 6060 or visiting the ticket office in person prior to the deadline. Season ticket members turning up on match day without having reserved their free tickets will have to pay to get in.

Supporters driving northbound to the tournament are advised to allow extra time for their journey due to lane closures on the A1 over Blaydon bridge, or to seek alternative routes.
