Newcastle agree deal for centre Dominic Waldouck
Aviva Premiership club Newcastle have agreed a permanent contract to sign former England Saxons centre Dominic Waldouck.
Waldouck, 28, spent most of the summer playing for Ohio Aviators in the United States' inaugural Pro Rugby competition, before moving to Newcastle on an initial one-month trial.
But Newcastle announced that Waldouck, who previously played for Wasps, Northampton and London Irish, will now be with them on a permanent basis.
"Dom has shown up well, and we are delighted to have been able to bring him on board full-time," Newcastle rugby director Dean Richards said.
"He is a quality player, he knows this league very well and we look forward to working with him on a permanent basis."
