Newcastle Falcons have completed the capture of Leeds Carnegie lock Calum Green on a two-year deal

Newcastle Falcons have completed the capture of Leeds Carnegie lock Calum Green on a two-year deal.
 
Green, 23, rose to prominence with Leicester Tigers and made his debut aged just 19 during a 46-16 victory over Saracens in 2009.
 
Making 19 appearances for the Tigers, including 11 Premiership outings, Green had the perfect introduction to professional rugby prior to making his Leicester bow.
 
Named Tigers Academy captain for the 2008-09 campaign, Green was then handed his chance to shine on the big stage in a friendly against a touring South Africa in 2009 which his side won 22-17.
 
"I'm looking forward to moving to Newcastle Falcons in the summer,” said Green.
 
"I've enjoyed my time at Leeds and I will be doing everything I can to help them in the end of season Championship play-offs.
 
"Newcastle is an exciting challenge for me and it will be great to team up with Dom Barrow again, a player I know very well from his days at Leeds.”
 
Newcastle director of rugby Dean Richards said: "Calum has already shown that he is more than capable of performing in the Premiership during his time with Leicester, and I'm delighted that he has made the decision to move to Newcastle."
 
"His strong displays for Leeds over the last two seasons have really caught our eye and he is at a good age with an amazing amount of potential.
 
"He is a fantastic signing."
