Falcons stars shine on international stage

Monday 26 November 2018

Newcastle Falcons stars once again shone on the international stage over the weekend, Tevita Cavubati and Vereniki Goneva helping Fiji to an historic test victory over France.

Lock Cavubati (pictured) and wing Goneva both started the Flying Fijians' 21-14 triumph at Stade de France in Paris, Cavubati playing 65 minutes and Goneva going the full 80 in a result which propels Fiji into the top eight of the World Rugby rankings for the first time in their history.

Sonatane Takulua captained Tonga as they fell 20-9 to Georgia in Tbilisi, kicking all of their points with three penalties.

Back-rower Mark Wilson completed a memorable autumn in England colours by playing the full 80 minutes in their 37-18 home win over Australia, the Cumbrian playing every minute in all four tests and emerging with a huge amount of credit.

Prop-forward Logovi'i Mulipola, meanwhile, was part of the Samoa team which defeated Spain 28-10 in Madrid on Saturday.

With the international window now at a close, all of the players will return to Newcastle and be in contention for Saturday's Gallagher Premiership trip to Northampton Saints.
