Leicester Tigers outside back Gareth Owen has confirmed a move to Newcastle Falcons on a two-year deal.

The 30-year-old joined Tigers in 2017 after a decade in Welsh rugby and made 29 appearances in Leicester colours, scoring two tries in the process.

Owen will link up with former Tigers No8 and director of rugby Dean Richards at Kingston Park as the Falcons aim to return to the Premiership at the first time of asking in 2019/20.
