Noon extends Newcastle stay

A Gallagher Premiership Rugby ball

The Falcons' recent win over Northampton saw their chances of making the drop look slimmer, but nonetheless the 23-year-old academy product has committed to them for another two years.

Having made his England debut on their North American tour in 2001, Noon has been on the fringes of the senior squad, and has also played a key role in England's ascent up the IRB Sevens ladder, playing in their two consecutive Hong Kong Sevens wins.

"If Newcastle go down, I will go down with them and try to help them come straight back up," he told The Journal.

"However, I don't think we will be relegated because in our last six games we have shown we deserve to be in the Premiership."

Noon's decision to stay at Kingston Park follows that of fly-half Wilkinson, who committed to the north-east outfit after much speculation of a possible departure.

The Falcsons' drive to stave off the dreaded drop to National Division One has seen a series of high-profile arrivals, such as New Zealand centre Mark Mayerhofler, South African flank Warren Britz and legendary Springbok lock Mark Andrews.
