Newcastle Falcons gear-up for the 2014-15 Aviva Premiership campaign with three pre-season matches as well as hosting the Premiership Rugby Sevens.
Kicking off pre-season with a trip to French Top 14 outfit Bayonne on Thursday 7 August, the Falcons then take on Rotherham Titans at Kingston Park on Saturday 23 August (kick-off 3pm) before rounding things off against Edinburgh Rugby at Hawick Rugby Club on Friday 29 August (kick-off 7.45pm).
Newcastle director of rugby Dean Richards said: “The three games will be a great test for us as we prepare for yet another highly competitive season in the Aviva Premiership.
“We play a good mix of teams who will all fancy their chances of having strong seasons in their respective leagues and we are looking forward to the challenge.
“The Premiership Rugby Sevens Series will also give us a chance to look at a string of exciting youngsters coming through the ranks, and we are proud to be hosting the northern section of the competition.”
