The Knights managed to get their season up and running with a 27-13 victory over Nottingham at Meadow Lane вЂ“ their first win in all competitions since the end of January вЂ“ and will be looking to make it win number two against Moseley at Castle Park on Friday evening. Last seasonвЂ™s corresponding fixture finished 29-21 to the Knights. Newcastle Falcons entertain Rotherham Titans in the second of the two Championship fixtures being staged on Friday night. The two teams last came together at this level back in the 1996/97 season, the Falcons winning on each occasion on their way to promotion to the Premiership.
Bristol, meanwhile, suffered a 44-6 hammering on their last visit to Clifton Lane on October 29, 2011. The two previous fixtures in South Yorkshire ended: Rotherham 22 Bristol 21 and Rotherham 0 Bristol 15. London Scottish host Cornish Pirates on Saturday. The Pirates won both at home and away in the 2011/12 campaign. The Exiles have conceded over 200 points this season вЂ“ 54 of them coming away to Nottingham in Round 5.

The sides met on five occasions last season, with Moseley claiming three wins to PlymouthвЂ™s two. The last meeting came in the now disbanded relegation play-off phase and ended in a 54-24 win for Albion вЂ“ the DevoniansвЂ™ highest score since they beat London Welsh 55-7 at OId Deer Park on December 2, 2006.

Newcastle have yet to drop a point having recorded their third bonus-point win in as many weeks with a 37-3 victory over Doncaster at Kingston Park last Friday night.
Only last month Newcastle comprehensively beat the Knights, 52-17, in a pre-season friendly and it would be a major shock if the tables were turned at Kingston Park on Friday night.

The Blues did the double over the Exiles in the Championship last season, racking up over 40 points in each of the games. Jersey and Moseley, both still searching for their first вЂWвЂ™, have never met in the league before, while Plymouth will be looking for a repeat of last seasonвЂ™s victory over Leeds at Brickfields when they entertain the Yorkshire club in another 3 oвЂ™clock kick off.
