Joel Hodgson

1st Aug 1992 1.78m/84kg Fly Half

A Newcastle native who came through the Falcons’ academy and represented England at Under-19s level, Hodgson rejoined the club in the summer of 2016 after a two-year spell away which saw a season at both Northampton Saints and Yorkshire Carnegie.

Able to play at either fly-half, full-back or scrum-half, the former Royal Grammar School pupil helped the Falcons to the 2012-13 RFU Championship title and the 2012 Premiership 7s crown.

Making his first-team debut for the Falcons as an 18-year-old, his fearless attacking game saw him playing in all but one of the club's 22 league games during 2016-17, scoring tries in Premiership victories over Northampton and Bristol.

Helping the Falcons to promotion in 2019-20 and playing 12 times the season after, Hodgson signed a one-year contract extension in the summer of 2021.

Hodgson joined Glasgow ahead of the 2022/23 season on a short-term deal
