Newcastle Falcons have welcomed the not-guilty verdict in the trial of Zach Kibirige.
The club have been aware of the allegations hanging over Zach since his initial arrest. This has been an extremely stressful time for Zach, and his hugely promising rugby career has effectively been put on hold during this very difficult period.
The club are satisfied that their faith in Zach has been borne out by the verdict in his trial. Zach remains an important member of the club’s playing staff and is available for all rugby and non-rugby-related duties.
Newcastle Falcons will be making no further comment on this matter.
