Early Bath blitz too much for Newcastle

17 Nov 2002
Early Bath blitz too much for Newcastle

All of their points came in that early spell, with an Andy Williams try in the second minute starting a whirlwind spell which eventually saw a further try from Tom Voyce and four Matt Perry penalties.

All Newcastle had to show by that stage was a penalty from veteran loan fly-half Earl Va’a and a Tom May drop-goal, but their spirited second half comeback did at least see the north-easterners earn a bonus point.

Their only try of the day came through former Northampton fullback Joe Shaw, with Va’a adding a further three penalties, but it was Bath who claimed a win which looks like making the Falcons’ winter a long and hard one as they remain near the bottom of the table.
