The Falcons’ last pre-season fixture before the start of their 2013-14 Aviva Premiership campaign will see the team travel to Hawick to take on Edinburgh Rugby.

Setting the tone for the season ahead, our Supporters Club are arranging travel to this cross-border fixture and are inviting fans to start the season in style with a trip north.

The game is scheduled for Friday 30 August, kicking off at 7.45pm. The coach will be departing Kingston Park at 4.30pm and leaving Hawick after the game at 10.45pm.

The cost of travel will be £15 for adults and £10 for juniors, with match tickets available to buy direct from Edinburgh via Scottish Rugby’s online ticketing site or by calling 0131 346 5180.

Supporters Club chair Julia Bradley said: “We have already booked a coach, with more on standby, to take fans up to the borders to cheer the boys on to what will hopefully be our first win of the season!

“After a summer without rugby we hope to see lots of fans joining us for this exciting friendly and cheering the lads on to a massive victory!”
