With a number of former Edinburgh stars in the Newcastle ranks – including Murray McCallum and Cammy Hutchison – it will be a brilliant opportunity to see both new and old faces, with plenty of time for autograph signing and selfies following the training session.

Supporters can also hear from the players and coaches on all things pre-season preparation with a number of in-session Q&As planned, while plenty of the club’s sponsors and partners will also be in attendance at the event, bringing further activities to the open session.
