Samoan speedster extends Falcons stay
TRANSFER NEWS: Sinoti Sinoti will be thrilling Newcastle Falcons fans next season – the hot-stepping wing agreeing on a contract extension to remain with the Kingston Park club.
The Samoan international scored the 2017/18 Premiership Try of the Season and has made 82 appearances for the Falcons since joining midway through the 2013/14 campaign.
Renowned for his side-stepping and explosive running, the 33-year-old livewire said: “My family and I have made Newcastle our home, we love it up here and it’s great that I’ve been able to extend with the Falcons.
“The supporters here have been awesome with me right from day one, the lads and the coaching staff make it a fantastic environment and I see only good things for the club.
“Yeah, we’ve had a tough time over the past couple of months, but I wouldn’t be signing again with the club if I didn’t have absolute full confidence that we’ve got what it takes to lift ourselves back up.”
Newcastle Falcons director of rugby Dean Richards said: “Sinoti is one of the most exciting attacking talents in the Gallagher Premiership, if not Europe, and it’s another boost to the club that he sees his future here.
“You can’t fail but enjoy his approach to the game, he puts bums on seats and more importantly he puts fear into opposition defences.
“On the back of the news that Mark Wilson and John Hardie have also signed contract extensions over the past couple of weeks it just goes to show that we are continuing to build as a club, despite the ongoing challenge of improving our league position.”
Newcastle Falcons are at home on Friday against French giants Toulon in the Champions Cup.
