The vastly-experienced Samoan international has made 41 appearances for the Falcons since joining from Leicester Tigers in the summer of 2018.

Capped 33 times by his country, including two Rugby World Cups, Mulipola has started all seven of the Falcons’ Gallagher Premiership games this season.

Director of rugby Dean Richards said: “Logo continues to perform at a consistently high standard, and it’s great news that he will be with us for another two seasons.

“His ability to play on either side of the front row is very useful, he has really helped anchor our scrum this season and he makes a nuisance of himself around the park.

“He’s a great character around the place who is very popular with team-mates and supporters alike, so it’s fantastic that he will be remaining in Newcastle to help our continued growth as a club.”
