Leinster Rugby have revealed they are off to France in August after they confirmed the two Bank of Ireland Pre-Season Friendlies ahead of the start of the 2018/19 season.

Leo Cullen’s men will first face a trip to France to take on US Montauban on Friday, August 10 in the Stade Sapiac (k/o 20:30 local).

US Montauban finished in second place at the end of the regular French PRO D2 league but lost out to Grenoble in the subsequent semi-finals.

A week later the province will play their first home game of the season in Energia Park as they welcome the Newcastle Falcons to Donnybrook on Friday, August 17.

The Newcastle Falcons finished in fourth position in the Aviva Premiership and qualified for next season’s Champions Cup in the process. However they lost in the Premiership Semi-Finals to the Exeter Chiefs.

Full details on the Newcastle Falcons game in addition to ticketing options will be available closer to the game.

The games represent a big chance for young players to make a statement of intent when you consider that the likes of Jordan Larmour, James Ryan, Josh Murphy and Caelan Doris all made their senior bows in last season's warm-up matches.
