Hodg­son’s boot is de­cid­ing fac­tor

Yorkshire Post - Sports Monday - - FOOTBALL -

RUGBY UNION: Re­place­ment fly-half Joel Hodg­son guided New­cas­tle Fal­cons to a cru­cial 21-20 vic­tory over Glouces­ter at King­sholm.

It was Glouces­ter’s first home league de­feat of the sea­son and Fal­cons’ win saw them ex­tend their ad­van­tage over their op­po­nents from two to four points with five Aviva Premier­ship games re­main­ing.

Ally Hogg and Micky Young scored tries for New­cas­tle, but it was the goal­kick­ing of Hodg­son, who kicked three penal­ties and a con­ver­sion, which proved the dif­fer­ence as Glouces­ter could not kick any of the con­ver­sions to their tries scored by Ja­son Wood­ward, David Halai­fonua, Mark Atkin­son and Lewis Lud­low.
