Newcastle earn narrow Brive win
European Challenge Cup
Steve Jones kicked five penalties and converted Joe McDonnell's try to help Newcastle to a narrow 25-19 win over Brive in the European Challenge Cup.

The French side had ex-England hooker Steve Thompson come on as a replacement as they came back from 16-6 down to level at 19-19 in a physical game.

But Jones kicked his fifth penalty with 10 minutes left at Kingston Park.

Tom May added a drop-goal in injury time for a Falcons outfit watched by fly-half Jonny Wilkinson in the stands.
