Marco Fuser Newcastle Falcons Sign Italy Lock On Two-Year Deal

Italy lock Marco Fuser has joined Newcastle Falcons from Benetton Treviso on a two-year deal.

The 29-year-old, capped 33 times for the Azzurri, made 119 appearances in eight seasons with Pro14 side Treviso.

Fuser is the second summer arrival ahead of the Falcons’ return to the Premiership, with Argentina centre Matias Orlando signing in July.

“Marco has performed at a consistently high level,” Falcons boss Dean Richards told the club website.

“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.”

Orlando, 28, has been capped 44 times, and will arrive at Kingston Park in December on an 18-month deal.

“He possesses a huge amount of quality in his skill set and work ethic,” director of rugby Dean Richards said.

Orlando helped Jaguares reach the Super Rugby final before playing three times at the 2019 World Cup in Japan, including in a 39-10 defeat by England.

Newcastle were promoted from the Championship when the season was prematurely ended amid the coronavirus pandemic, having gone unbeaten during the league campaign.

The 2020-21 Premiership season is expected to start in late autumn once the current delayed season is completed.
