Newcastle Falcons have signed Argentina prop Juan Pablo Orlandi from Bath.

The 31-year-old only played 10 times for the Premiership club after joining from French side Racing Metro in 2013.

He becomes the third Argentine to move to Kingston Park, alongside centres Gonzalo Tiesi and Juan Pablo Socino.

"Over recent months we've had a few front-row players unavailable so to add Juan Pablo gives us greater depth on either side of the scrum," said director of rugby Dean Richards.
