GLASGOW will play their Challenge Cup last-16 tie against Newcastle on Friday night, EPCR have announced. The single-leg tie at Kingston Park will kick off at 8pm. Edinburgh will be at home to Bath the following day, in a match that also kicks off at 8pm.
If they beat the English Premiership strugglers, Mike Blair’s side will remain at home for the quarter-finals, in which they will play the winners of Friday’s Biarritz v Wasps encounter. The Warriors, conversely, will be on the road again if they get the better of the Falcons: their opponents will be Lyon or Worcester, who also play on Friday night.
