Alex Rogers makes permanent Newcastle Falcons move

Newcastle Falcons sign prop Alex Rogers on a permanent deal.

Newcastle Falcons have confirmed the permanent signing of prop Alex Rogers.

The 28-year-old featured 19 times for the Falcons last season while dual-registered with Blaydon RFC.

Rogers moved to the National League One outfit from Lille after enrolling as a student at Northumbria University.

"With Alex studying at university and playing locally last season, it gave us a chance to keep an eye on and try out a player I knew from Harlequins and I thought he did well for us when he played," director of rugby Dean Richards told the club's official website.

"Coming into the side on a full-time basis, he will play a key part of our plans for the season ahead."

Newcastle get their Aviva Premiership campaign underway at home to Gloucester Rugby on October 16.
