Eric Fry: Falcons' sixth signing for next season
Newcastle Falcons have signed USA international prop Eric Fry for next season.
The 26-year-old, who has spent two seasons with London Scottish, is the club's sixth signing for the 2014-15 season.
Fry has played a crucial role in helping London Scottish secure a place in the Championship top six for the play-offs with two games remaining.
He has been capped 23 times for the USA and was part of their squad for the 2011 Rugby World Cup in New Zealand.
Newcastle director of rugby Dean Richards said: "Eric is a great acquisition for the club and gives us steel in the front-row.
"He's been a cornerstone of the London Scottish pack over the last two seasons, and his experience at international level will help us."
Fry said: "I've enjoyed my time at Scottish and we've had a reasonably successful season this year which is very pleasing.
"Newcastle will be a good challenge for me, and I've heard nothing but good things about the area."
