Does anyone know when the April fixture dates/times are confirmed ?

I'm hoping to bring my Junior team across for a mini tour in April and it would be good to get a Falcons game in as well i.e game Sat AM, Falcons pm, game Sun AM, or game Sat anytime, game Sun AM, Falcoms PM etc

Hi, there's no set date on when the TV picks will be confirmed, but BT Sport have already confirmed all fixtures up until March 24, so the April games will be the next ones to be announced.

Obviously they'll want to see what the league table looks like nearer the time before determining which games they think have the most riding on them.

Thank you for the detailed reply.
If the timings work out OK, I'll see you in April with my group !

In fairness to BT Sport they generally make their picks a good few weeks before the actual deadline for them to do so. It's much better in that regard than it used to be with other broadcasters, who would leave it very late to announce fixture changes.

I booked our juniors' tour to Gloucester on exactly the same weekend that Falcons are playing down there (what a coincidence....). Really hope it is not a Friday game though..

We've just received the TV picks for rounds 18 and 19, which should hopefully be announced in the next week or so.

On the website, Round 18 is now showing as Fri 12th April - is that now "set" ?

Yes, as is Sarries away on April 6. Anything after that is still TBC, although the last day of the season is typically the Saturday for all games at the same time.
