England has proven to be a profitable location for Northern Irish rugby players - just look at the success of the likes of Exeter Chiefs' Premiership winning duo Gareth Steenson and Ian Whitten, or Worcester Warriors' Niall Annett and Caleb Montgomery.

Now, Zach Kerr is hoping to add his name the list over the next few years after being picked up by Newcastle Falcons on an Academy deal and making his debut for the club last month.

The 21-year-old winger rose to prominence in the Falcons' win over Castres in the European Challenge Cup a few weeks ago, starting on the wing and having a stormer, setting up two tries on the way to a 26-17 win.
