Friday’s programme: More reading for less money

Thursday 17 October 2019 Written by: Adam

From Fijan childhood to life in a British boarding school, on to Northampton, Bath, Darlington, Northumbria University and now the Falcons first team – it has been quite a rise for the man who has scored five tries in his four games so far this term.

The in-depth exclusive with Wacokecoke is just one of many great features in Friday’s programme for the Hartpury game, with this season seeing £1 chopped from the cover price.

Programme editor Mark Smith said: “We’ve reduced the cover price from £3.50 to £2.50 to reflect the drop from 72 to 64 pages, but with the absence of Premiership adverts there is actually more reading material in this season’s edition despite the lower cost.”

Supporters buying advanced tickets for the Hartpury game can get a further 10% discount on their programme if they buy at the same time as purchasing their tickets, while match-day sales will be available in the usual manner in and around the ground.
