Ospreys lock James Goode has agreed to team up with RFU Championship outfit Newcastle Falcons for the rest of the season.

The 30-year-old, who made four appearances on loan at the Falcons last season, has been brought in as covered after James Hudson and Carlo del Fava suffered hand injuries.

Goode, who has previously played for the Cardiff Blues and Manawatu Turbos, told the Falcons' official website: "I am delighted to be back in the north east and I am really excited at the prospect of helping the club gain promotion back to the Aviva Premiership.

"There is a new coaching set-up in place at Kingston Park, and we have the nucleus of last season's squad, as well as some quality new additions - the club is certainly moving in the right direction now."
