Newcastle Falcons: Alex Tait and Tom Catterick sign two-year deals

Alex Tait and Tom Catterick

Newcastle Falcons have given new two-year contracts to Alex Tait and Tom Catterick after they helped the club to promotion to the Premiership last term.

Utility backs Tait, 25, and Catterick, 22, are both graduates from the Falcons academy system, and made 17 and 21 appearances last season respectively.

Both have experience of the Premiership from earlier in their Falcons careers.

"Alex and Tom performed well for us last season," director of rugby Dean Richards said.

"They thoroughly deserve their contract extensions. There is a lot of competition for places at present ahead of the new season, and I am sure they will relish the challenge."

The duo are principally full-backs, but have played across the three-quarter line.

Centre Jamie Helleur agreed a new two-year deal with the club last week.
