    FT: Newcastle 14-15 Worcester

    Newcastle v Worcester

    Worcester Warriors secured their first Premiership away win in two years as victory at Newcastle Falcons eased their relegation fears. 

    Andy Goode kicked two penalties for the hosts early on but flanker Dewald Potgieter crossed to give the Warriors a 7-6 lead at the break. 

    Kiwi winger Bryce Heem added a second try as Worcester played with the wind.

    Falcons prop Rob Vickers crossed on his 200th appearance but Craig Willis missed the vital conversion.

    Quote Message: I'm proud of the lads because they kept playing. We knew we couldn't just come here and shrink, especially with Goodey (Andy Goode) playing. Sometimes I just want that last five minutes to be a bit more organised a bit cleaner. from Dean Ryan Worcester Warriors director of rugby Dean Ryan on BT Sport

    And, as I mentioned earlier, not just any win on the road. Worcester's first in the top flight for nearly two years.

    Quote Message: We knew it was going to be a very tough game. But we just stuck to what we knew and what we've trained in the week, and we just came out and did what we believed in. It was a very close game but it paid off in the end. from Francois Hougaard Worcester Warriors scrum-half on BT Sport

  7. Full-time

    Newcastle 14-15 Worcester

    And it was indeed an ask too much - Newcastle cough the ball up, Worcester boot it out of play and Wayne Barnes blows his whistle for the final time.

    A precious, precious win for the Warriors.

  8. Newcastle 14-15 Worcester

    The Falcons have done their first job successfully - they've secured the ball - but now they're tasked with running it from inside their own half.

    It'd be a good one to win from here...

  9. Newcastle 14-15 Worcester

    The first scrum collapses into a heap, so it's take two. The camera pans to Dean Ryan, pacing from left to right. The Worcester boss can barely watch.

  10. Newcastle 14-15 Worcester

    But now Worcester have knocked-on - all they needed to do was hold onto the ball for 40 seconds or so.

    One final scrum. Newcastle have the put in. The clock is red.

  11. Newcastle 14-15 Worcester

    Scrum down, sky blue ball. Into the final 60 seconds. Can the pack in black - Newcastle's - produce one final heroic shove to give us a bit more drama?

    Not quite, Worcester secure the ball...

  12. Newcastle 14-15 Worcester

    Newcastle have the ball in hand and are into the Warriors half, working their way through the phases... But it's knocked-on by replacement Juan Pablo Socino, only just on the field!

    Could that be it? Surely that's it?

  13. Newcastle 14-15 Worcester

    But the Warriors are pinged for holding onto the ball on the floor! This game is not quite done just yet.

    Newcastle head to touch... Will there be a further twist?

  14. Sin-bin (Watson)

    Newcastle 14-15 Worcester

    Marcus Watson is absolutely in trouble - he'll spend the rest of this match on the sidelines.

    It'll be 14 v 14 for the final four minutes, which Worcester will kick off with a line-out on the right.

  15. Newcastle 14-15 Worcester

    A deliberate knock-on from Marcus Watson gives Worcester a penalty wide right. It doesn't deny the Warriors a clear try-scoring opportunity - but it was an opportunity to get clear.

    The television match official is called into action again, Watson could be in trouble here...

  16. Newcastle 14-15 Worcester

    Where from here then? With their captain still in the sin bin, Worcester Warriors are on the attack, looking for another score of their own...

  17. Try (Vickers, missed con Willis)

    Newcastle 14-15 Worcester

    It's given! Newcastle Falcons have their try!

    Rob Vickers, who led the team out at the start on his 200th appearance, is the man with it. And a crucial one it may be too.

    Now then, with Andy Goode having been replaced by Craig Willis, the conversion is far from a given...

    And Willis has missed it!

  18. Try review

    Newcastle 9-15 Worcester

    Hold on though, is there a knock-on earlier in the move?...

  19. Try review

    Newcastle 9-15 Worcester

    That's better defensive work from Worcester this time - but the second wave sees Newcastle cross the line. Surely they have the try this time?

    We're going to the television match official, but the key wording of the question is: "Is there any reason I can't award the try?"

    I fancy the Falcons have this...

  20. Sin-bin (Van Velze)

    Newcastle 9-15 Worcester

    Newcastle are absolutely piling forward via the rolling maul here, four metres out, three metres out, two metres out... Halted! But illegally - and Worcester captain Gerrit-Jan van Velze is yellow carded for his part in it.

    Back into touch. Worcester will have to do this the hard way.
