EXETER CHIEFS CONFIRM SIGNING OF NEWCASTLE LOCK WITTY


EXETER Chiefs have signed Newcastle Falcons lock Will Witty ahead of the 2019/20 Premiership season.

The 24-year-old Yorkshireman, who has made 73 appearances for the Falcons, has agreed a two-year deal at Sandy Park.

He said: “I’m looking forward to the move down to Exeter, but before all of that I’ve got a big job to do for the Falcons between now and the end of the season.”

Newcastle’s director of rugby Dean Richards said: “We wish Will all the best for his move in the summer and thank him for his efforts during his time at Newcastle.

“It goes without saying that between now and then he remains fully committed to helping us continue our strong finish to the season, with some huge games coming up.”
