Newcastle Falcons 10-52 win over Bucharest Wolves on Saturday saw the North East club book their first quarter final appearance in European Cup competition since 2009 by finishing as one of the three best pool runners up in this seasons tournament.

Securing the seventh seeding as a result, the team’s reward for the efforts is a trip to take on Exeter Chiefs at Sandy Park over the weekend of April 2/3/4/5 with the exact date and time to be confirmed shortly by tournament organisers EPCR.

Should the Falcons advance to the semi finals, then a trip to either the West Country or the West of Ireland will be in the offing after the draw for the semi finals pitches the winner of the Exeter v Falcons match away to the winners of the quarter final between Gloucester Rugby and Connacht.
