Full Time Report

Newcastle edge out Gloucestershire

Newcastle Thunder recorded just their second Kingstone Press League 1 win of the season with a tense 21-18 triumph over University of Gloucestershire All Golds.

Lamont Bryan crashed over for the All Golds, but an Ali Blair effort brought the visitors level on 17 minutes only for Chris Barlow to dive over and restore the home side's advantage.

Evan Simons barged over under the posts for Newcastle, who extended their lead shortly after the break, only for Alex Davidson to latch on to a Matthew Bradley grubber after the interval, with the latter adding a penalty to level the scores before Benn Hardcastle kicked a late penalty and a drop goal to snatch the points.
