Newcastle reached the final in last year's tournament

Premiership Rugby 7s fixtures announced

Tuesday 19 June 2018

Newcastle Falcons will open their Premiership Rugby 7s campaign against Saracens on Friday July 27, with the two-day competition held at Northampton's Franklin's Gardens.

The Falcons have been pooled with Sarries and Leicester Tigers in the seven-a-side tournament, which sees all 12 Gallagher Premiership clubs competing.

Newcastle kick off their campaign as the third match on opening night, starting against Saracens at 6.15pm on Friday July 27 in a competition which will be screened live on BT Sport.

The Falcons' second pool match against Leicester will be a 7.45pm kick-off, before attention then turns to Saturday's knock-out stage.

Newcastle reached the final of last year's competition, and have already shown an aptitude to shortened formats of the sport by making the final of this month's Beachcomber World Club 10s in Mauritius.
