Falcons recruit Helleur

Newcastle have announced the signing of Auckland centre Jamie Helleur for next season.

The 27-year-old, who has won three caps for Samoa, made his Auckland debut in 2005.

He becomes Newcastle's third new signing in recent weeks, following Otago back Ryan Shortland and Gloucester scrum-half Jordi Pasqualin.

Newcastle head coach Alan Tait said: "This is a sign of intent from the club. Jamie is a quality player and he will be a great addition to the squad."
