A Newcastle Falcons Women’s Invitational XV will take to the field for the first time at Kingston Park Stadium on Saturday.
The match against Novos is a 2pm kick-off on the main field, Newcastle bringing a team together for their first ever fixture.
Longer term the plan is to bid for a place in the Tyrrells Premier 15s, former Falcons prop Rob Vickers having been appointed head coach.
Saturday’s game is an early step on this journey as the Falcons look to put in place a squad for further invitational games next year, with supporters invited to watch the game free of charge via the East Stand.
There is also the opportunity for local girls’ teams to form the guard of honour for the 2pm kick-off. Interested clubs can email firstname.lastname@example.org for further details.
