Centre Joel Matavesi has agreed a new one-year contract with Premiership club Newcastle Falcons.

The 22-year-old younger brother of Josh, also a Falcons centre, joined the club in 2017 from Redruth.

Cornwall-born Matavesi has been a vital part of the club's A team winning the Premiership Rugby Shield's Northern Conference this season.

"I'm loving my time up here so far," he said. "I've come on loads, I want to continue to do so."

Joel's other older brother Sam plays for Cornish Pirates and Fiji.
