Newcastle Falcons have signed forward Semesi Taulava on a two-year deal from Worcester Warriors.

Taulava is the second new signing to be announced in the build-up to the 2014-15 season after Leeds Carnegie lock Calum Green agreed a deal earlier this week.

The Tongan enjoyed stints at Taranaki and Rotherham Titans before earning a move to the Aviva Premiership with Worcester in the summer of 2012.

Newcastle director of rugby Dean Richards said: "Semesi is a quality addition to the back row, and he gives us considerable power up front.

Strengthen

"He is another great signing as we strengthen our squad ahead of next season."

Taulava said: "I'm really looking forward to my move to Newcastle Falcons and I'm excited at the prospect of playing under Dean Richards.

"I like the philosophy of the Falcons and when I spoke to Dean I was impressed with the club's plans for the future."

"There is a good mixture of both youth and experience in the squad, and I hope that my experience can complement those talented youngsters coming through."
