Newcastle Falcons have confirmed that Samoa international prop Logovi'i Mulipola has penned a new deal with the Gallagher Premiership club.

Mulipola joined Newcastle Falcons ahead of the 2018/19 season after being part of Leicester Tigers for six seasons. He shifted to Gloucester on a short-term deal last year but returned back to Kingston Park ahead of the 2020/21 season and has made 41 appearances for the club.

The 33-year-old has represented Samoa at the international level since his debut in 2009 with his last appearance for them coming during the 2019 World Cup in Japan.

Newcastle Falcons director of rugby Dean Richards is delighted with the news of Mulipola extending his stay with the club for the next two seasons.

"Logo continues to perform at a consistently high standard, and it's great news that he will be with us for another two seasons," said Richards to the official website of the club.

"His ability to play on either side of the front row is very useful, he has really helped anchor our scrum this season and he makes a nuisance of himself around the park.

"He's a great character around the place who is very popular with team-mates and supporters alike, so it's fantastic that he will be remaining in Newcastle to help our continued growth as a club."

Newcastle Falcons currently are at seventh place in the table with five wins from eight games and will take on Northampton Saints next on 13th February.
