Newcastle Falcons have refreshed their line up ahead of Friday evening’s Aviva Premiership match against Gloucester Rugby as Director of Rugby Dean Richards makes six changes in personnel and a further two positional switches.

Three changes in the backs sees Alex Tait come in for Simon Hammersley, Mike Blair replace Ruki Tipuna and Rory Clegg assume Fly Half duties, as Juan Pablo Socino moves to Inside Centre in place of Adam Powell.

On the wings, Samoan duo Sinoti Sinoti and Alesana Tuilagi remain in place and ready to build on performances at The Rec which saw the headline facets of their individual styles on full display, while Gonzalo Tiesi continues to provide an experienced lynchpin at Outside Centre.

In the forwards, a re-jig of the front row sees Scott Lawson and Oliver Tomaszczyk move up from the bench for George McGuigan and Scott Wilson, while Rob Vickers continues at Loose Head Prop.

The Second Row partnership between Dom Barrow and Calum Green will continue to pack down together for a further week while in the back row, Ally Hogg will build on his successful return from injury last weekend by starting at Number 8.

On the flanks, Andy Saull remains in place at Openside while Mark Wilson moves across to the Blindside in the other positional change from the game against Bath.

On the bench, McGuigan, Alex Rogers and Scott Wilson provide the cover for the front row while fresh from his Aviva Premiership Debut last weekend, Sean Robinson joins Chris York to provide cover for the second and back rows.

Scrum half cover will be provided by Ruki Tipuna while the replacements are completed with Powell and Hammersley providing cover for the back line.
