Newcastle made a flying start to their Premiership return following promotion.

They came up with a shock away win at last season’s top-four finishers Bath last weekend.

Will they be able to follow that up at Kingston Park on Friday night when they play host to Sale Sharks?

Newcastle Preview – Falcons impress on top-flight return

Newcastle were heavy underdogs for their visit to the Rec last weekend as they faced Bath in their season opener.

Given that Bath made the top four last season and had an impressive season on home turf, the Falcons faced a tough task.

But they came up with a 19-12 win to open their account for the new campaign following last season’s promotion.

Newcastle earned promotion last season by winning all of their matches played in the second tier.

The Falcons go as the 11/4 underdogs for this weekend’s home fixture against Sale Sharks* (odds taken 2011 GMT Tuesday, 24th November).

That’s understandable again as the Falcons are facing another of the better teams from last season.

Salehad their final match of the season cancelled, meaning that they missed a big chance for a top four finish.

Can the Falcons come up with the goods again? They did win their last Premiership home game against the Sharks.

Our betting prediction:
Sale 1-7 winning margin

(odds taken 2011 GMT Tuesday, 24th November)


That was a 22-17 win that Newcastle Falcons took over Sale back in March last year.

The most recent of the head to head action does actually play out in favour of Newcastle.

The Falcons have won four of the last five meetings with the Sharks in all competitions, so that’s a positive.

A Newcastle HT/FT victory, which was they pulled off last weekend, is a 9/2 option for rugby betting* (odds taken 2011 GMT Tuesday, 24th November).


Sale Sharks Preview – Sale to be wary of Falcons threat at Kingston Park

Sale will have had the advantage of seeing what Newcastle can do, following the Falcons’ victory over Bath last weekend.

The Sharks themselves opened the new season with a victory as they collected a win over Northampton Saints

That was on home turf at the AJ Bell Stadium and the Sharks were well up at the halftime break 17-7.

They went on to finish the job 32-23 and they look as if they have picked up where they left off last season.

The Sharks were a very good attacking unit last season in the Premiership and were really unlucky to miss out on a top four finish.

That probably would have happened as the final game of the last campaign had been at home against the struggling Worcester.

Sale go into this fixture as the 2/7 outright favourites, so that doesn’t offer a lot of value for rugby betting* (odds taken 2011 GMT Tuesday, 24th November).

But it does say a great deal about the strengths that the Sharks have.

Sale Sharks collected a W6 L5 record on their travels last season. But in that sequence, there were excellent victories at Exeter and Wasps.

For rugby betting, a Sale Sharks -9 handicap is at 10/11 odds* (odds taken 2011 GMT Tuesday, 24th November).

That’s heavily backing the attacking prowess of the Sharks to come good again as they did last weekend.

Sale picked up a bonus point as they ran up four tries against the Saints last weekend. Three of those were in the first half of the contest.


Newcastle vs Sale Sharks Betting Advice

We expect this to be a little tighter perhaps than the bookmakers expect for rugby betting.

The Falcons got themselves into a great position at Bath last weekend and didn’t crumble in the second half under pressure.

So that will have given them a huge lift and we think that a Falcons +9 handicap is well-worth a look here at 10/11* (odds taken 2011 GMT Tuesday, 24th November).


Key Facts – Newcastle vs Sale Sharks Betting Tip

  • Newcastle have won 4 of the last 5 meetings with Sale
  • Newcastle won at Bath on the opening weekend of the new season
  • Sale Sharks comfortably beat Northampton Saints last weekend


That having been said, we do expect Sale to come up with a victory on the road. Even though Bath failed against Newcastle last weekend, the Sharks have a bit more to offer in attack than Bath.

So we think that gets the visitors across the line at Kingston Park on Friday night.

But we don’t expect the Sharks to arrive in the north east and have an easy time of things at all.

A reasonable 1-7 Sale winning margin at 27/10 piques rugby betting interest* (odds taken 2011 GMT Tuesday, 24th November).
