Barnes on the whistle for Falcons trip

Wayne Barnes will take charge of his 214th Premiership game when Leicester Tigers face Newcastle Falcons at Kingston Park on Friday evening (7.45pm).

The Gallagher Premiership's most experienced referee will be joined by Matthew Carley and Luke Pearce on the touchlines, while Rowan Kitt will fulfil Television Match Official duties. The citing officer is Shaun Gallagher.

Barnes last took charge of Tigers in the Round 17 match against Northampton Saints at Welford Road, while Carley was the man in the middle when Falcons visited Welford Road earlier this season.
