Monday 16 December 2019 Written by: Adam

The 3pm kick-off pits Greene King IPA Championship leaders Newcastle against the second-placed Trailfinders.

Newcastle currently enjoy a six-point lead at the top of the standings after winning all six of their league games this season, the Falcons also taking top seeding in the Championship Cup after winning all six in the group stage.

Saturday’s game in West London will be shown live on Sky Sports Action and Sky Sports Mix, the latter of which does not require a Sky Sports subscription.

Looking ahead to the fixture, Newcastle Falcons director of rugby Dean Richards said: “We need to make sure we’re on top form for Saturday because Ealing are a decent side.

“Whatever happens we’ll stay top of the table, but it’s a big game in terms of us just wanting to prove ourselves against a good team.

“I’m confident that no matter what happens we’ll be top at the end of the season, and you’ve got to have that confidence.

“I don’t think it’s arrogance, it’s just wanting to pit your wits against the stronger sides in the competition and having that desire to come out on top.”
