Newcastle Falcons have confirmed the signing of former England U20 scrum half Jordi Pasqualin for next season.

Pasqualin had come through the academy system at Gloucester, making 15 first-team appearances this season.

However the 20-year-old, originally from Sheffield, has now agreed to move to join Newcastle at the end of the current campaign.

And Falcons head coach Alan Tait believes Pasqualin can be the man to inspire his back line.

Tait said: "I'm keen to build a young team here and Jordi is somebody I've been looking at.

"I like the way he plays the game and nine times out of ten he will always find his No.10 with the pass.

"This is a step forward as we look to bring attacking rugby to Kingston Park."
