Sunday's Aviva Premiership match at Kingston Parkin Newcastle, between the Falcons and London Welsh, may well present the Exiles with their last chance to begin a fight to get them out of the relegation threatening mire that they find themselves in, after 12 rounds of the tournament.

The first 12 fixtures that they have played, have all ended in defeat for the Exiles, and they have secure just a solitary bonus point, for scoring four tries at the Rec against Bath in a 26-53 defeat in Round 2. The Newcastle Falcons and London Irish are the two teams that the Exiles have a remote chance of catching before the season's end. Even then, both sides have a 15 point advantage over Welsh, with just 10 Premiership fixtures in the regular season remaining.

The Falcons have lost their last four Premiership fixtures, but have managed a losing bonus point in three of those defeats. Their last win in the competition, coming back in late November by 20-10 at Kingston Park Stadium against the Cherry and Whites of Gloucester. With the Falcons having won just two of their last 14 home matches in the Premiership, and London Welsh having lost all 18 matches that they have played in all tournaments this season, the rugby on Sunday may not be pretty, but the result will have huge implications for the two clubs.
