Northampton 22-24 Newcastle: Final game play earns win

Nili Latu scored in the final play of the game to help Newcastle earn a fine 24-22 win against Northampton at Franklin’s Gardens.

Sonatane Takulua’s nerveless conversion secured the victory for the Falcons as they stole the win and left the Saints with a losing bonus-point.

It was a fifth successive Premiership defeat for Jim Mallinder’s men, who had looked set to win after Dylan Hartley popped up with a second-half score.
