Newcastle Falcons’ executive director Mick Hogan said: “It’s fantastic news that for the first time we will be playing a Gallagher Premiership game live on free-to-air television, and that more of our supporters will be able to see us play.

“It’s great additional exposure for the league as well our commercial partners and sponsors, who have been tremendous in sticking by us during such a difficult period.
