Warren Fury has signed a new two-year contract with Newcastle.

The scrum-half has committed his future to the Premiership club despite Ruki Tipuna's imminent arrival from Bristol and ongoing competition from Mike Blair.

Fury, capped twice by Wales, said: "There is a great culture being created here at the club at present and I'm really pleased to be a part of it.

"The north-east public are extremely passionate about sport, and I can really feel that passion every time I play at Kingston Park.

"I'm looking forward to the challenge of competing for a regular first-team place."

Director of rugby Dean Richards said: "Warren is a tenacious and determined individual who gives his all every time he walks out on to the park.

"He is also a great character, both on and off the pitch, and I'm really pleased he has re-signed with the club."
