Preview – Rugby Union: Newcastle Falcons v Exeter

Newcastle Exeter

The rugby union premiership began earlier this month and things appear to be starting to take shape.

With everyone having played three games so far this season, currently Exeter are on top on points different, leading 19 points over Saracens. These two sides were top of the table last year, however, while they had the most points, due to the way the league is run in the final Saracens won the championship. Fourth in the table at the time were tonight’s opponents, Newcastle Falcons, but they are currently in the bottom of the table.

Newcastle Falcons v Exeter is on BT Sport 1 at 19.00 (kick-off 19.45).
