Fantastic draw
Shame we didnít get Leinster or Munster but Toulon at home will be bouncing

Toulon at home in St James Park would be awesome.

We've had it confirmed it will only be a league game which is moved to SJP

I'd forgotten that, but a chap can dream, right?

To clarify, none of our European games will be at St James' Park.

Any chance the new stand will be started and finished by mid October?I think it may be needed as I suspect Kingston Park will be at bursting point for at least the first couple of these games
Also does anyone know when the actual fixtures will be agreed? Hoping for a nice trip to France for October

Iím really happy with that draw,some great teams but I do think we will struggle. I,m not sure how we got that difficult a draw with the way we were seeded?

What a great group for us. Easy to get to Edinburgh and a trip to either Toulon or Montpellier will be happy days. Roll on the new season.

An attractive draw. KP is big enough for European games. The Falcons have drawn Toulouse and Leinster in the past and did not sell out.

Woohoo, Edinburgh is the trip me and Mrs L were hoping for! Toulon at KP will be a big occasion I'm sure. No reason we can't be competitive in that pool, though we might struggle to qualify for the QFs.

Leinster was moved to Headingley at the last minute though.

A tough group there but really looking forward to it, especially going to see some of the teams like Toulon who have just sign Julian Savea by the way and Montpellier for the first time. smiling smiley

Falc Dancer 21 June, 2018 08:26
The two big French teams will be bringing some of the best players in the world to KP.
KP will sell out I have no doubts

Re: Euro Cup 2019
Falc Dancer 21 June, 2018 08:35
I got a bit carried away and forgot that Edinburgh coming to KP will be a return for Juan Pablo Socino

If only getting a sellout crowd was as easy as some on here assume!

A sorry saga played out in front of little more than 1000 spectators.

I donít assume itís easy Smithy but very do-able considering the great efforts to sell out KP and 30k tickets for SJP. I reckon the marketing team will have this in hand

Re: Euro Cup 2019
markismith50 21 June, 2018 10:28
It goes without saying we try to sell out every game, of course. It takes a huge effort from staff and supporters, and we are looking forward to these fantastic matches.

That was because the game had been postponed twice at KP the previous weekend due to the weather, rather than to get more fans in.

If we can't sell out after last season and the prestige of the teams/players coming to KP I'd be shocked.
