Dean Richards praises the performance of the Newcastle Falcons during their win over Worcester Warriors.

Newcastle Falcons director of rugby Dean Richards has hailed the team's young players following their victory over Worcester Warriors.

The side managed to secure a 16-11 win at Sixways Stadium on Saturday, recording their second victory of the campaign.

"I was pleased for a number of reasons," Richards told the club's official website. "I felt we controlled the game for the first half-hour, although we allowed them back into it through our own impatience and ill-discipline just before half-time.

"Some of our younger boys like George McGuigan and Scott Wilson are just getting better and better, and I have been delighted with what we are producing."

Twelve players who have come through the academy played at the weekend.
