Ive loved my time at the Falcons, I thought of it as my club even before I started in the academy here and that will never change.

Bad news for us but worse still for Scott. Such a shame - all the best for what ever the future holds.

Awful news for the lad and the club. Really looked to a be a future England Int a few years back but countless injuries must have crushed him.

All the best Scotty, thanks for everything.

Very sad news this, still young for a prop as well.

Real shame for Scott after he finally got a decent run last season, but you can't take any chances with the neck I suppose especially as a prop, and perhaps the accumulation of injuries has become too much. Good luck to him in whatever comes next though.

Gutted for Scotty, as he would have surely been a shoe in for a world cup spot had he stayed fit and had a full season under his belt this season. Very sad for the lad, but it is in his best interests health and well being wise.

Best of luck to Scotty in the future, whatever he decides to do. You never know, he could even end up coaching at Blaydon, Tynedale, Mowden Park etc, or he could even get some sort of job within the Falcons set up.

Whatever happens, good luck to the lad and thanks for all of the hard work he has put in.

I feel very sad about this. A real talent and such a shame. It was another horrific injury against exeter.

I wish scott all the best for the future.

Very disappointing that his rugby career has been cut short but can take consolation that he is leaving the sport relatively intact and can pursue another career.
Best of luck Scott

Just to echo what everyone has said, very sad news, especially for someone who was obviously destined for the top. Makes you realise how lucky Bobby etc were being able to retire on their own terms.

Hits home that every player from every club is only an injury away from their career being over.

Such a shame he never took a backwards step in the shirt. A really nice bloke off the field too. Scotty you will be missed, I hope the club does something for him.
