Nick Easter leaves Newcastle Falcons for Premiership rival

Former England international and Newcastle coach Nick Easter will depart the north east for Premiership rivals Worcester Warriors, according to the Mail Online.

They’ve reported that ‘Diamond believes Easter will help bring the hard edge to Worcester he thinks is required to achieve success at a club second bottom of the Premiership this term.’

In 2016, immediately after confirming his retirement as a player, Easter became Harlequins’ defence coach. He left his position in July 2018, following a change of management, ending his fourteen-year association with the club.

Easter then joined the Natal Sharks in South Africa as forwards and attack coach for the Currie Cup campaign in 2018 which they won beating Western Province in the final 17–12. He re-signed with the Sharks for Super Rugby & Currie Cup 2019 as forwards and defence coach. 

After his stint overseas Nick returned to England and the Premiership when signing for Newcastle Falcons as defence and breakdown coach in 2020.

An announcement confirming Easter’s move is expected soon.
