Having scored tries in both of his appearances for the club, Canada lock Evan Olmstead is enjoying life at 'exciting and vibrant' Newcastle Falcons.
The former London Scottish man has dotted down against both Doncaster and Nottingham in pre-season action, and looks to be one of the names to watch ahead of the Aviva Pre miership opener at home to Sale Sharks on Friday September 2.
Speaking to Falcons TV after Saturday's 34-12 home triumph over Doncaster, Olmstead said: "It is a great set-up here.
"The pitch is fantastic, the gym, the medical stuff and the squad is fantastic. It is a new city, an exciting and vibrant place to be and I am really happy to be here.
"Our forward pack has stood out so far, our scrum and mauling work is paying off and we have managed to get a few tries through those areas."
