Result: Newcastle 15-10 Wasps
Jimmy Gopperth kicks all the points as Newcastle Falcons claim maximum points against London Wasps this afternoon.

Five penalties from Jimmy Gopperth secured the victory for Newcastle Falcons over London Wasps at Kingston Park this afternoon.

Hosts Newcastle failed to run in a try, but the kicking intervention of 28-year-old Gopperth meant Wasps' ten points were in vein.

Gopperth converted three penalties before the break to cancel out a try from the visitors Christian Wade.

Ryan Davis, who converted Wade's earlier try, momentarily reduced the arrears after the break with a penalty kick.

However, New Zealand-born Gopperth added further kicks in the 46th and 68th minute to seal the win for the Falcons.
