Aviva Premiership Rugby Football Union club the Newcastle Falcons have announced the signing of Dominic Barrow from the Rugby Football Union Championship side the Leeds Carnegie on a two year deal as they prepare for their return to the top flight of the English professional rugby after spending just one season in the Championship.
And as they prepare for the new season of the Aviva Premiership, The Falcons have gone back the way they came up to the Premiership and completed the signing of the England Under 20 international with the player passing his medical with the club and putting pen to paper on a lucrative contract with the Kingston Park side.
The Falcons have been on a player recruitment spree every since they were guaranteed promotion to the Aviva Championship and have splashed the cash to bring in several players with Barrow becoming theory latest signing with the player quitting Leeds Carnegie for a new challenge in the top flight.
The 20 year old second row player played 13 matches for Leeds during their last RFU Championship campaign and was part of the England Under-20 side that won the IRB World Junior Championship earlier in the year. The Falcons have a lot of depth in his position already, having signed Fraser McKenzie from fellow Aviva Premiership club the Sale Sharks to add to the likes of Scott McLeod, Carlo Del Fava and Sean Tomes.
And Barrow is not overwhelmed by the challenge in front of him and added that he is looking forward to the challenge in front o him. He also offered his gratitude to his former team the Leeds Carnegie for helping his development when he was with the club and added that he hoped the Yorkshire club managed to reach the top flight at the end of this season.
