The reserve side of Newcastle Falcons will provide the opposition for Sale Jets in their first match of the 2012-13 Aviva ‘A’ League programme.
The sides will meet at Heywood Road on Monday 3rd September (7.30 p.m.), with Pete Anglesea’s new team hoping for a repeat of last year’s 35-0 win at Kingston Park. After that great start, there were also impressive victories against Northampton and Leeds, greatly enjoyed by the side’s regular supporters. Further wins after Christmas against Rygbi Gogledd Cymru 1404 and VVA Podmoskovye followed.
The Northern Conference of the ‘A’ League this year comprises five clubs, all meeting each other once. Gloucester return to the Jets’ fixture list, replacing Leeds Carnegie.
The semi finals and final are scheduled for December.
