"I am really excited at the prospect of joining Newcastle Falcons, a club that has serious ambitions of going all the way to the top.

"From talking to Dean Richards it is clear he has big plans, and after gaining promotion to the Aviva Premiership I am looking forward to testing myself on the big stage next season."

Director of rugby Richards said: Richards, said: "I am delighted. He is a solid acquisition as we build for the new campaign. He has a bright future ahead of him."
