Contract extension for Wilson

Scott Wilson from Eyemouth has signed a new two year extension to his contract with Newcastle Falcons.

Wilson, 19, who previously pl;ayed with Berwick, has made a phenomenal start to 2014. Featuring in both of the Saxons’ matches against Ireland Wolfhounds and Scotland ‘A’, Wilson was in fine fettle for England Under-20s just over a week ago as they defeated Wales Under-20s 67-7.

Since making his Falcons bow in a British & Irish Cup clash at home to Cross Keys last season, Wilson has never looked back. The former Sedbergh School pupil was heavily involved in Newcastle’s immediate return to the Premiership, and has continued his growing potential in English rugby’s top-flight this season to deservedly put himself in the international reckoning.

“I’ve had a great start to the year, especially with my call-up to the Saxons and I’m enjoying my rugby at the moment,” said Wilson.
