The Metcalfe Cup returns to Kingston Park

The Metcalfe Cup returns to Kingston Park

This Saturday sees RGS take on Durham School in the annual rugby fixture at Kingston Park. 
After the success of last year’s fixture at the home of Newcastle Falcons, this Saturday’s format will be similar to that of last year, which will see a number of age-groups playing.

The Under 14s and Under 15s will kick off the morning at Bullocksteads, with both teams’ games getting underway at 9am. The Under 16s and 2nd XV will also play at 9am, but on the Kingston Park pitches. These games will act as the curtain-raiser to the main event, The Metcalfe Cup, which gets underway at 10.55am.

Last year's game saw RGS run out 13-3 winners in a thrilling end-to-end game. 

Tickets are now on sale: adults £10, under 16s £5. They should be booked via the Newcastle Falcons ticketline. Please select the north side of the West Stand when choosing seats – this is the RGS supporters section. 

Tickets can be redeemed at the club shop after The Metcalfe Cup game, for a free ticket to the Newcastle Falcons v Exeter Chiefs game on Friday 21st September.
