Mark Wilson

Newcastle Falcons back-row forward Mark Wilson has signed a new three-year contract with the Premiership side.

The 22-year-old has scored three tries in 22 appearances for the Falcons this term, and follows Kiwi fly-half Jimmy Gopperth in committing to the club.

"I am getting a lot first-team exposure," Wilson said.

"At my age that is important, and the ambition of the club is there for everyone to see with guys like Jimmy signing up for another three seasons."

Wilson joined the north east club from hometown outfit Kendal in the summer of 2010, and made 16 Premiership outings in his first full season.
