Team news: Under-18s line-up for finals day

Friday 14 February 2020 Written by: Adam

The game is a 2pm kick-off at Worcester’s Sixways ground, the Falcons playing in their first ever finals day in the competition’s six-year history.

Academy coach James Ponton said: “We set a target at the start of the season to get to the finals day, and it’s great that we have been able to achieve that.

“We finished third in the Northern Conference after winning four of our six games, and only missed out on second place by a single try over the course of the season.

“We have played some good rugby over the six games and we have some great talent coming through, so it’s an exciting opportunity to be able to showcase that down at Worcester on Sunday.”
