Falcons fixture moved

Newcastle's Amlin Challenge Cup game against Exeter on Sunday has been moved 70 miles from a frozen Kingston Park to Galashiels in the Scottish borders.

The switch followed a pitch inspection by European Rugby Cup officials.

The Netherdale ground has undersoil heating and it became the only viable option despite other venues in the north-east and Cumbria being considered. The game will kick off at 1pm.
