Robinson re-signs with Falcons

Newcastle Falcons are pleased to confirm that Sean Robinson has signed a three year contract extension with the club.

The 24 year old joined the club’s Senior Academy set up at the start of the 2014/15 season after graduating from Durham University and progressed to the club’s senior squad after an impressive debut season.
 
Capable of playing at both second and back row, Robinson made his club debut in last summer’s Premiership Rugby Sevens competition before being called up to the Falcons’ first team for the pre-season fixture against Bayonne.
 
After going out on dual registration to Championship side Rotherham Titans at the start of last season, the former England Students player returned to the North East for the Falcons’ opening game of the European Rugby Challenge Cup against Bucharest.
 
The Greenwich-born forward scored his first try for the Falcons in their memorable victory at home to Stade Francais and went on to collect eleven first team appearances in total, including three in the Aviva Premiership.
 
Speaking of his new deal, Robinson said: "I’m delighted. It’s nice to commit my long term future to the club and it’s a weight off your shoulders to get it sorted, which adds to the excitement for the new season.
 
"I’ve taken the opportunities I’ve been given and really enjoyed them. I was fortunate to get a chance to play at Rotherham too and that really helped my game so I’m grateful to them; that opportunity to go from University rugby to Championship to European and then Premiership all helped me.
 
"This season I’m just setting out to work on my game and improve that."
 
Speaking of the re-signing, Falcons Director of Rugby Dean Richards said: "We’re delighted that Sean has chosen to re-sign with the club after a strong first season with us last year.
 
"We’re fortunate to have an array of talented players to call upon within our second and back row stocks and Sean has already established a place for himself amongst them. We look forward to seeing him continue to develop and to reap the benefits of that development throughout this season and beyond."
