Newcastle Falcons will hold next season's 'home' Premiership game against Saracens in Philadelphia.

The match will be held on 16 September, at MLS side Philadelphia Union's 18,500-capacity Talen Energy Stadium.

Saracens were involved in the first Premiership fixture played in the USA, beating London Irish 26-16 at New York's Red Bull Stadium in March 2016.




"This is an exciting opportunity which is commercially very good," Falcons managing director Mick Hogan said.

"We are excited and honoured that Newcastle Falcons will represent the Premiership in what is going to be rugby's next huge market."

We'll see more and more of this although I'm not quite sure what affiliation Newcastle has with Philadelphia?

London Irish in Boston, New York or Chicago makes sense and an Italy v Ireland game in the 6N but other than that?

I believe the correct response is "Do keep up 007"

Ahem: -Philadelphia = " the city of brotherly love". Or I'll nut yer one. Why-aye.

-Or could it be both cities' respective histories in the coal industry..?

[-Or could it be they found a right-sized stadium that wasn't too pricey..?]

Sorry T-Bone, your intelligent use of wit is clearly far too clever for my simple brain!

But PQ2, does that mean the ladies of Philly will be going out in short black and white stripped mini-dresses?

Means there is already a thread on this further down. Only in jest of course in case anyone think I'm being obnoxious!

Apologies T-Bone I did look to see if there was already a thread on the subject but I clearly wasn't concentrating as I didn't see one. I promise to check and double check in future.
