Transfer News: Sinoti Sinoti makes decision on his future

Hot-stepping winger Sinoti Sinoti will be thrilling Newcastle Falcons fans beyond the end of this season after the Samoan star agreed a contract extension to remain at Kingston Park Stadium.

The 32-year-old has become a cult hero on Tyneside by virtue of his tackle-busting prowess and trademark evasion, with defenders up and down the land struggling to lay a hand on the man who has made 62 appearances for the Falcons since joining in January 2014.

Scoring three tries in his nine Aviva Premiership appearances this season, Sinoti joins fellow wing icon Vereniki Goneva in agreeing a new contract, with the Pacific Islands pair regarded among the most deadly double acts in the division.

Newcastle Falcons director of rugby Dean Richards laid clear his delight at retaining the services of Sinoti, saying: “He is a player who gets people out of their seats and puts fear into opposition defences.

“Sinoti has a unique skill set which our supporters love watching, he finds space where other people would not be able to and it’s a huge boost to the club that we are able to plan ahead with him as a key weapon in our armoury.”
