Challenge Cup Highlights: Newcastle Falcons v Brive

Challenge Cup Highlights: Newcastle Falcons v Brive

Newcastle are through to the semi-finals of the European Challenge Cup and fully deserved their 25-10 victory over Brive this evening. It was a slow start to the game however and a series of handling errors limited the amount of attacking opportunities Newcastle had in the first half. Scott Wilson and Zach Kilbridge managed to cross the whitewash for Newcastle while Etienne Herjean scored for Brive - The scoreline read 12-10 at the interval. 



Newcastle tidied up their handling game in the second half and when Toby Flood surged through the Brive midfield defence and passed outside to Alex Tait who scored in the corner, the game was more or less over as a contest. Tait managed to score again 10 minutes later while a Joel Hodgson penalty in the last kick of the game added to the Newcastle winning margin. FT Newcastle 25 Brive 10.
