Edinburgh Rugby v Newcastle Falcons

With the start of the all-new Guinness PRO14 season just a week away Edinburgh Rugby continue their final preparations with a friendly against Newcastle Falcons.  Kick-off is 6pm and tickets are available.

Edinburgh Rugby play Newcastle Falcons from the Aviva Premiership in a pre-season friendly this evening at The Greenyards in Melrose.  It’s the first time the squad has played in the Borders since they entertained Romania at The Greenyards in a pre-season clash in 2015.

Tonight’s game is another opportunity for the #blacknredarmy to see how new head coach Richard Cockerill is shaping the team ahead of the new PRO14 season.  It comes a week after Edinburgh lost narrowly to Sale Sharks in a spirited performance at Meggetland.

Kick-off is at 6pm.

Tickets in advance are available via the ‘Get Tickets link.

Admission on the day is priced: Adults £10 ~ U18 £5.  Tickets are subject to availability: checking the Edinburgh Rugby Twitter feed before travelling is recommended.
