The latest basketball, football, horse racing and rugby union fixures this March
The frustrating season continues for Newcastle’s basketball team The Eagles and with only one team beneath them in the table, things are looking pretty grim. There’s never been a better time to get behind our local team, so get yourselves down to Scotswood Road.

The Falcons at home have been terrific to watch this winter; guts, talent and real pace have combined to make them a really first-class outfit. With the demise of two teams this year the season’s fixtures have been reduced but, if you can, try and get along to their remaining home games for a really fun atmosphere – it takes some beating. These are two to make a note of.
