Edinburgh 31, Newcastle Falcons 13: Edinburgh secure a bonus and top spot

  • Edinburgh v Newcastle

Richard Cockerill got the better of former boss at Leicester Tigers Dean Richards, Edinburgh's bonus-point win meant they went top of their Heineken Champions Cup pool.

"Dean's pretty smart, he puts it out there, 'is it going to be contested or uncontested scrums?' so I think that played on our minds a little bit and we looked a little bit rusty in the first half and it was a miserable old night, so it was the night for the underdog, but they took a similar team to Tolulon and got a result. Lockwood is going to have a crack at tight-head and they've come here to have a contest", said the Edinburgh coach. Van der Walt's conversion attempt flicked the post but went the right side for Edinburgh fans. They are now three points ahead of Falcons at the halfway stage.

Newcastle Falcons travelled up to Scotland to take on Richard Cockerill's Edinburgh while Worcester Warriors crossed the channel to face Pau - here's how they got on.

The Falcons made a request to the EPCR to have tighthead Jack Payne registered in the European squad so that he could be eligible to play in tonight's game but the club confirmed that they were "not permitted to do so".

The Falcons had a try by Adam Radwan and a string of kicks by Brett Connon to lead by three points, with the host's response coming with a Hamish Watson try and five points from the boot of Jaco van der Walt.

Edinburgh extended that lead by turning the screw on the depleted Falcons scrum ten metres out in the left-hand corner.

ITV pulls plug on Brexit debate between May and Corbyn
ITV was rumoured to favour a simpler head-to-head format, but it has also failed to break the impasse between Corbyn and May. A head-to-head would give viewers clarity and allow both speakers to get into detail.

In 14 minutes Edinburgh hit back, a series of patient forward drives gaining a couple of yards at a time eventually wearing down the Newcastle defensive line for Pyrgos to put Watson in from close range, van der Walt converting off the post. However, good work by Darcy Graham saw Edinburgh regain possession and, when the penalty came, the South African made no mistake this time.

The home side then set off in pursuit of the bonus-point try and they thought they had snatched it when Darcy Graham hurtled down the right flank and dived over, though he was deemed by the television match official to have been nudged into touch just before touching down. It went down, Edinburgh opted to pack down again, got a shunt on before Newcastle splintered, and referee Marius Mitrea had no hesitation awarding the penalty try.

It wasn't until the 73rd minute that things finally clicked with Kinghorn collecting a clearance kick and launching a sweeping attack, which was carried on by good link play from Graham, a brilliant offload from Viliame Mata and a well-judged toe-poke into space from van der Walt, before the Edinburgh full-back appeared on the scene again to score the bonus point try his team needed.

Replacements: D Cherry for McInally 63, A Dell for Schoeman 58, S Berghan for Nel 58, C Hunter-Hill for Toolis 61, L Hamilton for Ritchie 58, N Fowles for Pyrgos 69, S Hickey for Kinghorn 73, J P Socino for Johnstone 63.

Newcastle: A Tait; T Arscott, C Harris, P Bettencourt, A Radwan; B Connon, T Takulua; A Brocklebank, G McGuigan, S Lockwood; T Cavubati, G Young; R Burrows (capt), G Graham, C Chick.
