Newcastle Falcons have released Owen Finegan from the final year of his contract. Finegan who is 34 joined the Falcons last year after a successful spell with Australia and the ACT Brumbies.

“Owen had high expectations but the relentless nature of the league and our style of play have made it a testing season,” said Falcons boss Rob Andrew.

“Owen’s vast international experience has been an asset and a great resource for the coaching staff to tap in to.”  Andrew added

Finegan was a World Cup winning flanker with Australia in 1999 and was one of Newcastle’s high profile signings last summer.
