Looking forward to seeing his new squad in action on home soil, Warriors head coach Sean Lineen, said: 'this is a great chance for the Glasgow rugby public to get behind the team at our new fortress, The Arena.

"It will be another big test for us before we travel down to Wasps for our final pre-season game next Thursday. Things are really gearing up ahead of the new season.

"Newcastle Falcons always give us a good game and it will be good to see Steve Bates again in his new role with the Falcons," he added.

I am delighted to be able to provide this service so that we can meet the expectations of our supporters."
