Newcastle Falcons and the Newport Gwent Dragons are locked in a head to head battle for top spot in the Challenge Cup’s Pool 3, despite Stade Français starting the tournament as clear favourites to finish in top spot, and claim a quarter-final place.

On Saturday, the two sides clash at Kingston Park Stadium in Newcastle Falcons, in a game that will go a long way to deciding the Pool winners, with the Dragons currently holding a single point advantage over the Premiership opponents. However, when the teams met earlier in the competition at Rodney Parade, the Falcons claimed a memorable 30-26 success against a Dragons side that was brimming with confidence having won against Stade in Paris just the week previous.

The Falcons have met Welsh opposition on five previous occasions in the European Rugby Challenge Cup, and have won all five fixtures, and extending that run to six, will allow them to put one foot in the quarter-finals, given that they finish their qualifying campaign the following week against the winless and bottom of the Pool, Bucharesti Wolves. With little to play for in the PRO12 competition, the Dragons are sure to put everything into securing a positive result ahead of their last game next week against Stade at Rodney Parade, in the knowledge that two wins will definitely see them into the last eight.
