Falcons U18s hosting Scotland U18s on Sunday

Kick-off is at 1pm with free parking and entry for all supporters, and the East Stand Tap & Tackle bar will open for drinks and refreshments.

Academy head coach PJ Butler said: “This is Scotland Under-18s’ final preparation match before they start playing their Six Nations fixtures, and it will be a tough assignment for the boys.

“Playing against any international team is obviously a big challenge, but it’s great for us to have the game and for supporters to be able to come along and watch.

“The club team would normally have the advantage of more time together from an organisational perspective but we have quite a few of our own boys away on international duty, so a number of our regular Under-18s team will be away.

“It’s a great opportunity for us to play some of our Under-17s though, who have been understudies through the Under-18s season league block, and it will be good for them to get an opportunity.”
