Falcons’ Fixtures 2013/14

Premiership_trophy_320

It’s that day of the summer that Premiership rugby fans await with much anticipation, having been starved of rugby for almost two months in most cases. Live rugby anyway, since we have the Lions tour this year.

 

The fixture gods have given us the same start as our last season in the big league, with a home game against Bath that actually opens the whole Premiership season on Friday 6 September. The BT Sport cameras will descend on KP as Dean Richards leads his troops out in the first match of our third spell in the top division.

 

After that is one of two new grounds we will visit in the league this season – the Salford City Stadium to face Sale – and then a trip to champions Leicester.

 

Other timings of note include Saracens away during the autumn international friendlies, and, the Saints, Harlequins and Leicester during the Six Nations. All of these ought to be to our benefit.

 

Interestingly, the Falcons play consecutive home games against Wasps and Sale over the Christmas-New Year period, after Exeter away – Sandy Park is a very cold place in December, even for a Geordie!

 

Harlequins in February is just a week after Bath away – looks like a good opportunity to take an early trip back to the south.

 

Finally, we finish at home to Exeter, a team that has never lost at KP in the league. Not an easy one.
