Gloucester led 10-0 at half time after a try by Tom Voyce and Nicky Robinson’s conversion and penalty.

Newcastle’s Falcons could have been a lot closer on the scoreboard but Jimmy Gopperth was having an off day with the boot.

In the second half Gloucester continued to dominate and scored tries through Eliota Fuimaono-Sapolu and Charlie Sharples and Nicky Robinson’s boot was on song with the conversion.

Newcastle were given some hope when Luke Eves crossed the white wash but Gloucester hit back with a converted try from Darren Dawidiuk.
