Newcastle Falcons will contest their first final of the season on Friday August 6 at Bath's Recreation Ground, as they look to become the first ever winners of the JP Morgan Asset Management Premiership Rugby 7s.The Falcons lifted the Leicester leg of the inaugural competition on Friday July 23, recording three wins from three in their games against Sale Sharks, Leicester Tigers and Leeds Carnegie.
They now progress to the finals event down in Bath on Friday August 6, where they will be up against Saracens, Harlequins, Sale Sharks and the two top sides from the West Country leg of the tournament.
Coach Mark Laycock looks likely to keep faith with the majority of the players who fared so well at Welford Road, saying: "The guys really put their hands up, and the majority of that squad will be involved when we travel down to Bath for the finals.
"The exceptions to that will be Jack Smales and Jack Harrison of Tynedale who are both unavailable for selection, but there are a number of players interested in filling those gaps.
"Guys like Rob Vickerman have expressed an interest, which is obviously great news given his calibre as an England Sevens international, plus players like Chris Pilgrim who featured for us last year in the Middlesex Sevens.
"The core of the side will be guys who have played together a lot for the Wailers on the Sevens circuit, and our victory at Leicester last weekend really owed a lot to the work that the Wailers have done in developing Sevens talent.
"We will finalise our squad as next week goes on, but having had a taste of silverware down at Leicester the boys are definitely hungry for more in what we know will be a tough final against some good sides."
With over 5,000 turning up at Harlequins to watch Saracens top Group A and then 6,500 heading to Welford Road to see Newcastle Falcons win Group B, both teams will take an unbeaten record into the Finals evening.
With live music and entertainment running throughout the evening, the 7s Series is generating a summer party atmosphere with entertainment on-pitch all night long and a chance to see the next generation of Premiership Rugby stars take their first steps.
Tickets are just £10 for adults and £5 for juniors. To buy tickets go to www.ticketmaster.co.uk .
