SIGNING | Wacokecoke flys in from the Falcons

Fijian Powerhouse, George Wacokecoke signs for the Doncaster Knights from Premiership side, Newcastle Falcons for the 2024/25 Season.

Suva born Centre, Wacokecoke started his career playing in the Northampton Saints Academy. He quickly became a household name for the Falcons as he aided them to Premiership promotion, from the Championship back in 2019.

Speaking with new forwards coach for the 2024/25 season, Darren Fearn shares insight into George’s career,

“George came through the Saints academy and Bath signed him from there. He moved to the Northeast to study, and this is where I met him, he was a stand-out player in BUCS Super rugby, and he played for England students in 2 campaigns.

He made his premiership debut at the end of his 3rd year of University, and this is when he signed with Newcastle.

He’s been with the Falcons since they were in the Championship as a regular starter, to where he won the championship with them. George then signed a 3 year deal with the Falcons to continue his Rugby career.”

Head Coach, Joe Ford had a few words to say on Wacokecoke’s arrival…

“George is an awesome signing, he’s a player that can produce moments. He’s a player that’s tough to coach at times as he’s a very special talent and we’re very excited to get him down here to Castle Park playing week in and week out for us, it’s going to be brilliant to watch.

We’ve done very well to get him here, there was a lot of interest from France but he wanted to come and be a part of what we are building here. He’s worked with Darren Fearn (New forwards coach for the 2024/25 season), and Darren couldn’t speak more highly of him.

We can’t wait to work with him and he’s also excited to show us what he capable of doing, he’s a top quality signing and such a quality player.“

28 year old, Wacokecoke comes into the Knights line up for the 2024/25 season standing in at 180cm and weighing in at 94kg.
