Rob Vickers has signed a new one-year contract with Newcastle Falcons.

"Through sheer hard work and a determination never to give up he has earned his right to play at this level, and I'm delighted that he will be with us for at least the next year."
Steve Bates Quotes of the week

The hooker, 27, was a latecomer to professional rugby union in 2007-8 but has featured regularly for the Falcons this season.

Newcastle director of rugby Steve Bates said: "Rob has been one of our most improved performers this season, and he is really developing well as a first-team regular.

"He came in to our system late, not until he had finished university, but he is a great role model for youngsters who may not have been picked up by the academies.

"Through sheer hard work and a determination never to give up he has earned his right to play at this level, and I'm delighted that he will be with us for at least the next year."
