Falcons chief executive Paul Varley said: “With the fixture taking place on Good Friday it is an ideal opportunity for families with children to enjoy the game.

“From the feedback that we received from supporters we decided to bring the kick-off time forward.

“The club would like to thank Jersey and the RFU for their cooperation on this matter and we look forward to welcoming Jersey to Kingston Park.”

Jersey chairman Bill Dempsey added: “We were approached by Newcastle and have consulted our director of rugby Ben Harvey and checked, where possible, the travel plans of our supporters. After doing this we have agreed to the earlier start.”
