Newcastle Falcons to face Edinburgh friendly

Newcastle Falcons’ final pre-season friendly will see them travelling to Pro 12 side Edinburgh on Friday August 26.

The match continues a recent tradition of pre-season friendlies between the two clubs, who last met in Hawick two years ago.
 
Newcastle Falcons' director of rugby Dean Richards said: "Edinburgh are a quality outfit and will offer us the kind of test we need a week before we begin the new Aviva Premiership season at home to Sale Sharks on September 2.
 
"Although this is an away fixture the distance between the two cities should allow a good number of our fans to travel up and watch what have always been keenly-contested games."
