Newcastle Falcon's new signing Adam Powell says the club can clinch promotion back to the Aviva Premiership this season.
The Falcons have already won the RFU Championship at a canter after winning all 18 of their matches so far. But winning league alone doesn't guarantee promotion - that can only be done via the playoffs at the end of the campaign.
However, inside centre Powell says he's confident his new team can end the season on a high. The 26-year-old, who has just joined from Saracens, said:
"I'm really looking forward to the challenge ahead of getting us back into the Premiership and competing at Premiership level.
"I've had the experience of being in this situation before - being involved in a lot of semi-finals and finals before - and hopefully I can bring that to the team."
Powell will make his Falcons debut away to second-placed Nottingham tonight.
