Despite their defeat last weekend in Pool 3 of the European Rugby Challenge Cup at Kingston Park Stadium to the Newport Gwent Dragons, a result that ensured the Dragons of a quarter-final spot, Newcastle Falcons still have their destiny in their own hands. They visit Romania to take on the Bucuresti Wolves at the Cluj Arena, knowing that they need to win and better Stade Francais' result against the Dragons in Newport, to almost certainly claim one of the best runner-up places in the last eight of the tournament.

When the sides met in Newcastle Falcons in Round 1, the Falcons claimed a try-scoring bonus point win by 43-19, and a similar outcome on Saturday, would see them progress. However, the last time that the Falcons visited the Wolves they needed a late kick to squeeze home by 13-12, in a game that quite frankly they would have had few complaints about, if they had lost.

The Romanians have just one losing bonus point to their name from their five fixtures so far, and should they suffer another defeat on Saturday, it will be the first time in their history that they haven't won at least one Pool fixture in the Challenge Cup, and this season is the tenth time that they have taken part in the competition.
