Learn more about Newcastle Falcons' American summer signing
Newcastle Falcons feature on Aviva Premiership Rugby’s new American broadcast partner NBC this weekend, with Sunday’s game against Leicester Tigers live via the NBC Sport Live Extra streaming service.
Ahead of the match, which will be screened on a platform with 20 million active users, American summer signing Nick Civetta spoke to Falcons TV in its latest “introducing” interview.
The 26-year-old back-five forward joined the Falcons from Florence-based Italian Serie A club RC I Medicei in May, having previously played for fellow Italian sides SS Lazio and Viadana.
The 6 foot 8 New Yorker has played three times for the USA Select after twice being named in the USA Rugby Collegiate All-American team and enjoyed a try-scoring outing in the 38-21 Aviva A League win against Northampton Wanderers on Monday.
