Gloucester Rugby produced a stirring comeback to grab a 22-16 win at Newcastle Falcons in the Aviva Premiership on Sunday.
Newcastle made the prefect start when Tom Catterick crossed the try line within 60 seconds of kickoff.
The try was converted by Rory Clegg, who went on to add two penalty goals as the hosts built a 13-3 inside the opening 24 minutes.
Rob Cook touched down to start the revival on the half hour, before Freddie Burns's second penalty and Jonny May's try put Gloucester ahead after the interval.
A Phil Godman goal briefly restored parity for Newcastle. However, two more penalties from the boot of Burns secured victory for the visitors.
Result: Chiefs snatch Gloucester victory >
