Cavaliers kick-off time brought forward

The kick-off time for Cavaliers’ final Premiership Rugby Shield match of the season against Newcastle Falcons on Easter Monday, April 22, has been brought forward.

The match at Kingston Park will now kick off at 4.00pm rather than 7.45pm.

Newcastle have already secured top place in the Northern Conference and, therefore, a home semi-final.

Cavaliers still have a mathematical chance of finishing second but it is a slim one. They could finish level on points and wins with Northampton Wanderers but are likely to miss out on points difference, the third factor in deciding league places.
