Newcastle hooker George McGuigan, centre Tom Penny and lock Sean Robinson have agreed new contracts.

McGuigan, 26, will stay for three more seasons and Penny, 24, has signed a new one-year deal while Robinson, 28, has agreed a new "long term" contract.

McGuigan rejoined Falcons from Leicester Tigers last summer while Penny is still recovering from damaged knee ligaments earlier this season.

Robinson returned from a broken arm for the closing weeks of the season.

Newcastle were relegated after seven straight seasons in the Premiership.

"Despite the blow of being relegated this season, we've still got an incredibly talented group of players," McGuigan said. "I see huge growth ahead."
