Welcome to the Newcastle Falcons Academy section. Our philosophy as a club has always been that the ‘person’ is more important than the ‘player’ and for those who are invited into the Academy, we promote both social and educational development alongside rugby development.
As a club we are proud of our track record in bringing local players through the Academy system and into the Newcastle Falcons first team squad and beyond. Over 30 players have come through the Falcons Academy and gone on to earn International honours, including three British and Irish Lions (Jonny Wilkinson, Rory Best, Geoff Parling). As our programmes evolve to meet the constantly changing needs of the modern elite player we are confident that our region will continue to be a breeding ground for top class rugby players.
