DURFC's Josh Basham signs 3 year Falcons contract

(4 April 2019)

Rugby’s Josh Basham, who is a first year Economics Student has signed a 3 year contract for the Newcastle Falcons.

Josh is a strong and defensively solid player hailing from Wellington School and has been previously capped by both London Irish and England U20s before joining Durham University this season. He is currently recovering from an ankle operation and is undergoing rehab but is looking forward to a good preseason with the club.

The link that DURFC have with the Falcons is fantastic, it allows the students to combine their professional rugby programme with their academic studies and Josh is one of a number of players who has done this in recent years, highlighting Durham as a great place to excel both on and off the field.

We look forward to catching Josh in action with both the Falcons and DURFC when he returns to the playing field post injury.
