Newcastle Falcons under-18s travel to Sale Sharks today, for round two of the Aviva Premiership Under-18s League.
The Falcons fledglings, who got off to a winning start to their campaign with victory over Worcester Warriors last weekend, will make the trip to Carrington itching to register back-to-back triumphs.
Academy manager Mark Laycock said: “Sale will be a tough proposition for the lads, but we are in good shape and are confident of putting in a solid performance.
“The conditions aren’t the best so it will be interesting to see how both sides handle the elements.”
