Below, RUCK has assembled a list of the best or most well known players who came very close to joining Newcastle Falcons.
1. Gavin Henson
Newcastle Falcons had the opportunity to sign the Welshman in 2013 when his agent approached the club offering Henson’s services on knock-down deal. However, after brief talks, their offer of signing him on £60k per season was not taken up, and he subsequently signed for London Welsh.
