Newcastle Falcons have today announced that Sinoti Sinoti has agreed a new long term deal with the club.
Having joined the club in December 2013, the Samoan winger has rapidly established himself as one of the most exciting players in the Premiership.
Featuring in 20 out of 22 Premiership games, and scoring nine tries, he also topped the league charts for the number of defenders beaten (85) and meters made (1641) and was also included in the BT Sport team of the season at the Premiership Rugby end of season awards.
The 30-year-old earned a recall into the Samoan national side for the summer’s Pacific Nations Cup but an injury sustained to his lower leg whilst on international duty has ruled him out for up to four months.
He said: “I’m really pleased that I’m staying at Newcastle, I’ve had a great time at the club so far. I’m really enjoying my rugby and being here in the North East.”
“I’ve been made to feel so welcome by everyone, fans, the rest of the boys and I am just really comfortable here and wanted to stay around. It is a great club with great people and I can’t wait to be back.”
Director of Rugby Dean Richards added: “Sinoti is a quality player and brings a lot of power, aggression and go-forward to the table. He was excellent for us throughout last season and more than earned the plaudits that came his way.”
“He is understandably a player we wanted to secure for the foreseeable future at the club and we are delighted to have achieved that.”
“With his new deal concluded, he can focus on getting back to full fitness and I’m looking forward to when we can welcome Sinoti back.”
