The three-year deal will see Newcastle Falcons’ squad enjoying the added assurance of wearing internationally-renowned, custom-made mouthguards.

OPRO are the world’s largest manufacturer of mouthguards, with the UK-based company having received the Queen’s Award for Innovation in recognition of their ground-breaking work in improving children’s and sports players’ oral protection.

OPRO are dedicated to bringing cutting-edge technology, innovation and safety to all athletes at all levels of sport and are the official mouthguard partner of several leading associations, including England Rugby, the Wallabies, Great Britain Hockey and 11 of the 12 Aviva Premiership teams.

Newcastle Falcons’ lead doctor Rachel Scurfield said: “OPRO have a longstanding reputation within rugby for products which place player welfare and safety first.

“It is great news that Newcastle Falcons are continuing this formal partnership with such a renowned brand, and that our players will benefit from wearing top-quality mouthguards.”

OPRO chairman and founder, Dr Anthony Lovat BDS, said: “This is an exciting time for OPRO as we celebrate our 20th Anniversary.

“We have been a proud supporter of Newcastle Falcons for over 10 years and I am delighted to have agreed to renew our partnership with the club.”
