Warriors v Newcastle postponed following severe weather warning

Warriors fully support the decision to postpone tonight’s Gallagher Premiership match against Newcastle Falcons at Kingston Park owing to severe weather conditions in the North East.

The safety of all – spectators, staff and players – comes first in making these decisions. A Met Office issued a Red Warning has been issued for the region ahead of the arrival of Storm Arwen. The warning advises against unnecessary travel and also of  the potential threat to life.

The match has now been rearranged for Saturday November 27 with 6pm kick-off when it is hoped that weather conditions in Newcastle will have improved.

The majority of the Warriors squad travelled to Newcastle on Thursday and trained at Blaydon RFC, but other members of the squad, including travelling reserves and staff, made the outward journey today.
