Team news: Falcons XV to face Stirling County

Friday 1 November 2019

Hooker George McGuigan makes his first appearance of the season on Saturday when a Newcastle Falcons XV hosts Scottish Super6 side Stirling County.

McGuigan has been named co-captain for the 2019-20 season but has missed the early part of the campaign after undergoing scheduled knee surgery during the summer.

He skippers a side continuing their series of friendly matches against the new Scottish Super6 sides, the Falcons XV having already defeated Heriot’s home and away.

Samoan Rugby World Cup star Logovi’i Mulipola returns to club action with a place on the bench, Saturday’s 4.30pm kick-off seeing free entry for all supporters from 2.50pm onwards.

Prior to that Newcastle Falcons host Jersey Reds in a 1pm Championship kick-off, with tickets for that game available by clicking here.

Supporters with a valid Falcons v Jersey ticket are entitled to watch the Rugby World Cup final in Kingston Park’s West Stand concourse bar, which opens at 8am for the 9am kick-off. A full bar service will be in operation, with the ticket office open from 7.30am.
