Newcastle Falcons have been given a further boost as they build for the future after both Gonzalo Tiesi and Matt Thompson signed new deals with the club.

The news comes a day after Scott MacLeod committed himself to the Falcons, the former Scotland lock signing a one-year deal.

Argentina international centre Tiesi has agreed a two-year extension and hooker Thompson has signed for a further year.

Newcastle director of rugby Dean Richards is delighted to secure the experienced duo on new contracts.

Richards said: "After Scott MacLeod re-signed last night, it is great to see two more commit their futures to the club.

"Gonzalo and Matt are talented individuals and bring a wealth of experience to the table which is vital in the Aviva Premiership."
