Newcastle Falcons vs Northampton Saints

Conversion Quins

No mistake from Smith in front of the posts.

Try Quins

Saints are short of numbers out wide and after Northmore scythes through a gap, he passes inside for Danny Care to score under the posts.

5

Accidental offside for Saints as Mallinder grubbers through and Proctor just can't gather, and two minutes later there's a late tackle on Mike Brown, meaning the visitors can clear into touch inside Saints' half.

3

Miscue for Saints at the first lineout however and it's a free kick for Quins. Saints recover inside their own 22 again, and Mitchell clears to Brown who is tackled by Wood.

2

Clear knock-on from Quins in the middle of the park missed by the referee, but it doesn't matter as Matt Proctor gets over the ball and wins a penalty for the hosts inside their own 22.

KICK-OFF

We're underway at the Gardens! Saints are playing from left to right as we look in their new Black, Green and Gold home strip. Marcus Smith sends the kick-off high into the grey sky and it's collected by Nick Isiekwe.
