As preparations build for the new Premiership Rugby season, Newcastle Falcons will play in an inter-house, True North Origin Fixture on Saturday 12th August. 

During preseason the Falcons squad have been divided into four states; Northumberland, Tyne & Wear, Durham, and Cumbria.

Each state is represented by players who were born in or are from that region along with randomly allocated players from non-represented regions to even things out. 

Over the course of pre-season the states have faced a series of activities and challenges.

For the True North Origin clash Northumberland and Tyne & Wear will form the North squad and a combination of Cumbria and Durham will make up the South squad.

On the day there will be the opportunity to meet players prior to and post-match and there will be Junior Falcons activities where kids can come along and get involved.
