Zach joined the Falcons’ senior academy in the summer of 2020.
The Northern Irishman is a former first team captain at Bangor Grammar School, who played in the All-Ireland League for Bangor before moving to play club rugby in New Zealand with Tauranga Sports.
Also playing once for the Bay of Plenty provincial team, Zach had a two-month spell in the English Championship with Yorkshire Carnegie, and combines his rugby commitments at the Falcons with a law degree at Newcastle University.
Zach made his first team debut in December 2020 when he helped the Falcons to an away win over Castres in the European Challenge Cup, and made his Premiership bow away to Exeter in May 2021.
The 2021-22 season saw Zach making four senior appearances, scoring his first try for the club in March 22 during a home win over Leicester Tigers in the Premiership Rugby Cup.
In 2022-23 he featured a further five times, scoring a try against Northampton Saints in cup action.
