Team news: A-Team for Northampton away

Monday 08 April 2019 Written by: Adam

The table-topping Falcons need just a single point from their two remaining games to secure a home semi-final on the back of last week’s 73-5 home win over Sale Jets, Newcastle losing just one of their eight games in the competition so far.

Tim Swiel starts at fly-half after converting nine of the Falcons’ 11 tries a week ago, flanker Connor Collett being among the players retained as coaches Mark Laycock and James Ponton juggle their resources.
