Newcastle Falcons 30 - 25 Saracens
This happened 20 seasons ago during the 97 /98 season. I was at the game at KP on Wednesday 25 March 1998 with a 19:30 kick off, as were 6867 others.
I am Sale-ing
Going into Round 2 of the Aviva Premiership season, Newcastle will travel to the AJ Bell stadium to face-off with Northern rivals, the Sale Sharks. Sale, who lost in their opening game sit in 10th place after they lost to Wasps in Coventry 50-35 but will be looking to rectify that this Friday with a strong performance in front of their faithful supporters.
The season starts here
The Falcons have named a functional-looking team for tomorrow night’s opening Premiership game of the season against Worcester at KP.
2017: A Falcons Odyssey
Since we need an article, I’m going to put my thoughts on the Philadelphia Falcons here.
The last regular season preview, but maybe not the last one all together: a lot could happen this Saturday! We will hopefully be seeing a Harlequins victory around teatime, combined with a Falcons win. If so, then I'll see you in the South Stand in a few weeks for what could be an absolute cracker against Connacht or Edinburgh.
Well here it is. The last home game of the season, I look forward to welcoming the Warriors fans to Kingston Park, and hopefully can find a couple to chat with during the game this Friday. Funnily enough, the Warriors are now the only Premiership team that I haven't seen play so I am looking forward to a close encounter....
Now all. I hope your tickers are all in fine working order after the drama that was Friday night. Not one for the elderly or those with high blood pressure, but our boys pulled through and kept the chances of a top 7 finish alive in nail biting fashion. A huge challenge this week for our team though as our boys travel down to the fortress that is Welford Road!
Well all I can say is...Finally! Friday night rugby back at Kingston Park, it doesn't get any better. This Friday our lads will take on the Cherry & Whites as Newcastle look to make it back to back wins over Gloucester in the Premiership for the first time since the 2011-2012 season (5 years).
Five thoughts from Harlequins v Newcastle
The scoreline tells a big story. But I tried to make some sense of the game and here's what I came up with while on the Tube:
After a 3 week break from Premiership rugby due to the Anglo-Welsh finals, the falcons will now prepare to face 7th place London side, Harlequins. The South London outfit sits on 42 points, 6 points ahead of ourselves in 8th place, and John Kingston and his team need this win for a lot of reasons that will be discussed below.
