Newcastle Ink Eagle Paul Mullen

The list of players who played for the Eagles and in Major League Rugby last year and have now made the move overseas is growing. Paul Mullen is the latest player having signed a four month deal with the Newcastle Falcons. He joins Paul Lasike, Bryce Campbell, and Ben Landry in having made the move to England. Mullen played for the Eagles in the summer and for the Houston SaberCats last season. He was raised in Ireland and played for Munster at the U-20 level.

In a press release from the Falcons Mullen said: "I am delighted to be joining Newcastle and am looking forward to developing my game further alongside a great squad." Falcons director of rugby Dean Richards said in the same release: "Paul has broken through to the full international scene in quite a big way over the past few months, and been part of a rapidly-improving American Eagles side. His presence will further bolster our front-row resources going into the new Gallagher Premiership season as we look to improve yet again on what was our best league finish for 20 years."
