Newcastle Falcons have confirmed that loosehead prop Adam Brocklebank has signed a new long-term deal with the Gallagher Premiership club.
Brocklebank, a product of Falcons' senior academy, made his senior debut with the club in 2014 and has played 120 games for the Kingston Park club.
“I’ve been at the club for nine years now and I’m buzzing to have signed this contract,” said Brocklebank to the club's official website.
“I love the environment at the Falcons, I love the city and I just feel like the club is going in a really exciting direction now. There are big changes, and this is going to be a place to be.”
Brocklebank has represented both England Counties U18s and England Students and has now signed a three-year contract with the Falcons.
“I first came here as a fresher at university, and this is where I’ve grown up as a rugby player," he added.
“My fiancée Paige is from the North East, we’ve recently had a baby boy, called Benny after my grandad, and this is a special place for me.
“I’m just really excited for these next three years – hopefully many more years after that – and I want to help drive the club forward.
“There’s a new buzz around Newcastle Falcons, and with my family and rugby life both in a great place at the moment I’m just looking forward to a really positive future on and off the field.”
Newcastle Falcons are languishing at the bottom of the Premiership table having lost all their 12 matches in the season.
