Stade Francais eased into the Heineken Cup semi-finals by crushing Newcastle 48-8 at the Parc des Princes.
Stade Francais (22) 48
Tries: Blin (2), Sarramea (3), Poulain, Arias
Cons: Skrela (3), Liebenberg (2)
Newcastle (3) 8
The French champions scored seven tries with Olivier Sarramea (3), Mathieu Blin (2), Julien Arias and Raphael Poulain all touching down.
Falcons full-back Matt Burke scored all his team's points through a penalty and late try, but the Falcons were thoroughly outclassed.
Stade now face a semi-final clash against Biarritz or Munster.
Newcastle brought a travelling contingent of 3,000, but they were unable to see Jonny Wilkinson in action, the England star failing in a bid to make the bench following knee trouble.
Welsh international flanker Colin Charvis also failed to make the bench following his foot trouble.
After an early penalty, the stylish French side scored their first try after eight minutes, carving open the Falcons to send in Blin for a stunning touchdown.
Blin went over again after a forward drive following a 19th minute lineout and before the break the home side had a third try as Sarramea scampered over.
Newcastle's day went from bad to worse after 49 minutes when they lost prop Micky Ward.
With two hookers - Andy Long and Matt Thompson in the front-row - Irish referee Alain Rolland had no option but to rule uncontested scrums for the final 30 minutes.
Newcastle bagged an excellent consolation from Burke following a flowing move, but finished with 14 men when substitute Epi Taione was sin-binned after a high tackle on Stade flanker Remy Martin.
Sarramea then completed his hat-trick with two more tries in the closing minutes.
