Rugby Union: Falcons slip closer to the drop

Have your say

Newcastle Falcons slipped closer to the Aviva Premiership’s trap door as visitors Exeter claimed a hard-fought 16-10 win at Kingston Park.

Alan Tait’s men remain well adrift at the foot of the table, although they did manage a welcome losing bonus point out of the game in the 78th minute, thanks to Tim Swinson’s converted try.
