NEWS: Two-time European champions Saracens will play Newcastle Falcons in a Premiership clash in Philadelphia on September 16.

It will be Saracens' second appearance in the United States after they played London Irish in March 2016 in New York.

"Newcastle Falcons and Saracens have both been part of a record-breaking 2016-17 season for Premiership Rugby and now they will once again bring all the excitement, skills and intensity of the competition to the USA," said Premiership Rugby Chief Executive Mark McCafferty.
