Newcastle Falcons back row Callum Chick and fly-half Brett Connon have signed new contracts with the Premiership's bottom-placed club.

Connon has agreed a two-year extension, while fellow 22-year-old Chick has signed an undisclosed-length deal.

Chick scored the winning try in a dramatic European Champions Cup victory against Montpellier in October.

"I was a Falcons fan growing up, this has always been my club and it's great to extend my contract here," he said.

Director of rugby Dean Richards said: "Callum is a very talented player who has already proven himself capable at the very top level of the club game.

"Brett has shown great maturity and ability this season in coping with some really high-pressure situations."
