Newcastle eased to a comfortable victory over Italian side Calvisano.
Alex Tait touched down inside the opening two minutes to hand the Falcons an early advantage.
Rory Clegg then added a second try as Newcastle established a commanding 20-3 half-time lead.
Zachary Kibirige added a third after the break, but the visitors were unable to secure a bonus point and replacement Paino Hehea's touchdown provided a consolation for Calvisano.
