Brighton-born Cato has also featured for England Sevens team and was Sarries' top try scorer during the 2008-09 season.

"I am delighted to join Newcastle Falcons, and this is a good opportunity to get back to playing regular rugby," he added.

"To be a part of a club with the ambition of returning back to the Premiership presents an exciting time ahead for me."
