Newcastle Falcons sign Italian international Marco Fuser
The 29-year-old spent eight seasons with Treviso, winning 119 caps, with 22 of those coming in the Heineken Champions Cup.
Falcons director of rugby Dean Richards said: “Marco has performed at a consistently high level for the best part of a decade, and will help bring that edge to our forward pack.
“He’s a real grafter who just gets on with the basics, and those are precisely the guys you need in that engine room.
“He’s a destructive tackler who enjoys the tighter aspects of the game, and it’s one of those important building blocks for us as we look to make an impact on our Gallagher Premiership return.”
Newcastle’s promotion to the top flight came on the back of their unbeaten Championship season, Richards’ men winning all 15 of their league games to establish an 18-point lead at the top of the division when the campaign was prematurely ended due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
