WARRIORS face a mouth-watering trip to director of rugby Gary Gold’s former club Newcastle Falcons in the opening round of the 2017/18 Aviva Premiership.

Following the curtain-raising clash at Kingston Park on Friday, September 1, Worcester face back-to-back home games against West Midlands rivals Wasps on Sunday, September 10 and reigning Premiership champions Exeter Chiefs on Friday, September 15, before a trip to Kingsholm to take on neighbours Gloucester on Friday, September 22.

The Christmas period will see the club welcome newboys London Irish to Sixways on either December 22, 23 or 24, before travelling to European champions Saracens on either December 29, 30 or 31.

Warriors’ final home game will be against Harlequins on either April 27, 28 or 29, before the club end the season with a trip to Franklin’s Gardens to face Northampton Saints on Saturday, May 5.
