European Challenge Cup round-up
Challenge Cup logo
Saracens flanker Richard Hill was among the scorers as his side ran in 11 tries to thrash Parma 71-16 in their European Challenge Cup pool match.

Fly-half Glen Jackson finished the match with 24 points after scoring two tries and kicking seven conversions in the one-sided encounter.

On Saturday, Bath's Joe Maddock scored in the last minute to make sure of his side's 24-18 win over Harlequins.

And Worcester easily overcame Albi 29-0 in pool five.

Back-rower Will Bowley, prop Darren Morris and hooker Aleki Lutui scored three of their side's five tries.

In pool three, leaders Brive smashed Italian visitors Petrarca 78-18, with 19-year-old Alexis Palisson scoring a hat-trick of tries in a one-sided affair.

On Friday, Newcastle fell to a 16-10 defeat at the hands of Montauban, their second defeat of the European Challenge Cup.

The loss leaves Newcastle, whose points came from Micky Ward's try and Toby Flood's goal-kicking, in real danger of going out of the competition.

But there was better news elsewhere for British and Irish clubs, with Glasgow demolishing Narbonne 51-7.

Newport-Gwent Dragons thrashed Bucurest 66-10, Connacht overcame Montpellier 26-13 and Bristol beat Bayonne 38-17.

Newcastle had former Australia full-back and club captain Matthew Burke back in the side as well as England centre Jamie Noon, but the pair could not stop their side following the 41-12 loss against Brive with another defeat.

Bristol, who had Shaun Perry back at scrum-half, continued their successful run in the competition, scoring five tries to stay top of Pool One.

Connacht's win was their first of the competition, while Glasgow ran in six tries for their comprehensive victory.

The Dragons had far too much class for their Romanian opponents, with Wales full-back Kevin Morgan grabbing two of their nine tries.
