DONCASTER Knights will face Aviva Premiership side Gloucester as part of their pre-season preparations - and also hope to announce a game against Newcastle Falcons.

Brett Davey will take his side to Kingsholm to play Gloucester on Saturday, August 25.

A week later Knights kick off their 2012/13 Championship campaign at Plymouth Albion.

Davey also told the Free Press this week that he hopes to confirm a game against the Falcons.

A friendly clash with the Tynesiders may depend on whether they remain in the Premiership as London Welsh attempt to overturn the RFU’s decision to block their promotion to the top flight.
