The Siberia based team’s squad includes Georgian centre Davit Kacharava, who was part of the team that played at Kingston Park Stadium in the summer along with a host of Russian internationals, ensuring the promise of a competitive game.
Managing Director Mick Hogan said: “After the success of Rugby World Cup in the city, we as a club want to build on the momentum that saw over 150,000 spectators actually go into St James’ Park and the tens of thousands who came to the fan zone.”
“Dusting off the rugby for a tenner promotion for a game against Enisei we hope, will allow us to show Kingston Park Stadium and the Falcons off to people who either haven’t been before, or for a while and get them to connect with the team.”
“We will have a squad packed with some of our most exciting local talents for this game, players like Tom Catterick, Chris Harris, George McGuigan and Michael Young and after this competition served up some of our most exciting games last season, it’s a perfect opportunity to promote the club.”
