Gloucester lost ground on the European qualification spots as Newcastle Falcons rallied late on to secure a dramatic 16-14 victory at Kingston Park on Friday. Joel Hodgson's 80th minute penalty put the hosts ahead with no time for Gloucester to respond, the visitors having initially pulled clear in the second half through Tom Marshall's try. The victory pushes the Falcons up onto 40 points, just one behind Gloucester, whose hopes of securing a place in Europe have taken a hit with just three games remaining.
