Media coverage ahead of Sarries

Hi guys, just a bit of a heads-up regarding media coverage ahead of Sunday's game that you might want to look out for.

Tom Arscott has done an exclusive interview in today's Daily Express.

Dave Walder is live tonight in the BBC Newcastle Total Sport studio at around 6.40pm, then from 8pm features in a two-hour show with Smithy senior in which he gives an in-depth interview about his life, career and all things Falcons. It's interspersed with music and by all accounts is a very good listen (it was recorded last week).

The Mail on Sunday have been to Mark Wilson's house for their 'at home with' feature, so he will be top of the shop in the paper on game day. I was there on the day and it should make a nice piece.

The Sunday Times have Niki Goneva as their main interview. Stephen Jones was up yesterday and had an extended sit-down and photoshoot with Wor Niki. Apparently he was on great form and they got into a good few subjects.

BBC Look North and ITV Tyne Tees both attended our press conference so will have items with Deano, Will Welch and George McGuigan over the next day or two.

The Rugby Paper had a good chat with Welchy as well, which will run on Sunday.

Plus, of course, your regular BBC Newcastle and Falcons website previews.

Oh, and do make sure to buy our new-look match programme on Sunday, where Toby Flood and Mark Wilson are the main exclusive interviews (among other things)

It has been a busy one!

Cheers
Smithy

That's a seriously impressive list and very much indicative of the progress the club is making both on and off the pitch.

Congrats to all concerned and all the best for Sunday, we'll be avidly glued to the telly!

Good stuff Aidan, it's looking like our best opening-day crowd for a very long time and should be a cracking atmosphere. I've been down to the ticket office this morning and they're taking a lot of calls.

I'd really get in early if people are after tickets for this one, and arrive early on the day to avoid queues at the car park, ticket collection, turnstiles and bag-search points.

Oh, and Deano is on the cover of North East Times (out tomorrow) with a big interview inside and some video stuff on their website.

Slipped my mind, as we did the actual interview and shoot a little while back!

Good show in Friday’s Northern Echo, too: [www.thenorthernecho.co.uk];

Good work Smithy :-) The Northern Echo article talks about a game at SJP against Italy. Has that been confirmed? There had been talk of it a few months ago but I've not heard anything since.
