Second-row forward Will Witty joined the Newcastle Falcons Academy in November 2013 after impressing for the club in the Aviva A League.

Witty, who came to the region to study at Newcastle University, made his first team debut for Newcastle Falcons in their 2014 European Rugby Challenge Cup game against Bucharest Wolves , a game which saw him cross the line for his first senior Falcons try less than two minutes in.

He continued to play a significant role for the club in that competition and went on to make his first Premiership appearance later that season away to Gloucester.

The tireless worker has already amassed a number of representative honours including caps for England Students, England U19s and North U18 as well as England Under 20s, for whom he turned out during the 2015 Junior World Championships in Italy as England made the final.

As of the 2018/2019 Champions Cup, Witty has had 16 European Cups appearances scoring 4 tries.
