Tournaments/Tours: European Rugby Challenge Cup

Newcastle are still seeking their first win of the season after going down 13-9 to Brive in the European Rugby Challenge Cup.

However, the losing bonus point secured by Dean Richards' side at least keeps their hopes alive in Pool One.

The French side scored the game's only try through Fijian wing Elia Radikedike early on and Nicolas Bezy converted and added a penalty to make it 10-0.

Tom Catterick swapped penalties with Bezy to make it 13-3 at the break and the only points in the second half came from the Aviva Premiership outfit.

Catterick was on target twice more after the break to cut the gap to four points - but the Falcons were unable to swoop to steal the victory.

Newcastle now go on to meet Russian qualifiers Enisei-STM next Sunday in round two in a game that should give them a chance of picking up a win.
