Wilson Re-Signs With Falcons

Newcastle Falcons tight head prop Scott Wilson has committed his future to the club after agreeing a new three year contract to stay at Kingston Park.

One of the top young prospects in the country, the 21 year old has impressed over the course of his first professional contract with his performances showcasing powerful scrummaging and dynamic play in the loose.
A product of Eyemouth High School and Berwick RFC, Wilson signed his first professional contract with the Falcons in 2011, having been involved with the clubs academy since the age of 14 and went on to make his club debut in the British & Irish Cup in the 2012/13 season.
Since then, Melrose born Wilson has made 49 appearances, including 25 in the Aviva Premiership, where the young Borderer has impressed against some of the most experience names in the game.
Part of the England U20s team that won the IRB Junior World Championship in 2013, Wilson has continued to develop as an international player whilst at Kingston Park, having made his England Saxons debut against Ireland Wolfhounds  in January 2014.
With his new deal agreed, Wilson is now looking forward to continuing his development under the eyes of a Falcons coaching team including John Wells and Micky Ward.
Wilson said: “It’s my first club, I’ve been here since I was in my academy and I enjoy playing professional rugby for it. Playing Premiership Rugby has been tough going and has really tested me out and provided a real challenge.”
Looking ahead to his future with the Falcons, Wilson added “I just want to develop, we have some really good coaches here who I get on with well and who have made the decision to say really simple.  It is my club, I like being here and I just want to keep on playing here.”
Director of Rugby Dean Richards said: “Scotty is a really good young prop who has really established himself as a key member of the setup here and it is great news for the club that he has agreed this new deal.”
“He has already shown a great deal of skill and ability since his first appearance against Cross Keys and when you think front row forwards don’t really come into their prime until their late twenties or early thirties, he has so much potential to realise.”
“He’s been part of this club for over seven years and I’m delighted he’s agreed a deal that will take him to at least ten and that he sees the Falcons as his club.”
