The Newcastle Falcons (England) Rugby Academy aims to be regarded as the most productive and efficient Academy in the UK, with a constant stream of well-developed athletes augmenting the Newcastle Falcons senior squad and the various England teams on an annual basis. The academy will be viewed as a world-class centre of excellence for rugby development and the majority of the first team squad will be academy graduates.
