Result: Late Josh Drauniniu try gives Worcester Warriors first win

Josh Drauniniu scores a late try to earn Worcester Warriors their first win in the Aviva Premiership with a 17-12 victory over Newcastle Falcons.

Josh Drauniniu scored a 72nd-minute winning try as Worcester Warriors bagged their first victory in the Aviva Premiership this season with a 17-12 win away to Newcastle Falcons.

Both defences proved impregnable in the first half at Kingston Park as the teams were forced to attain points via penalties.

The boot of Phil Godman kicked the Falcons into a slender 9-6 lead at the interval, with Chris Pennell on target for the visitors.

Further penalties from Godman and Ryan Lamb in the second half had the game deadlocked at 12 points apiece in the final eight minutes, before Drauniniu crossed for the game's first try to seal the Warriors' maiden win of the campaign.
