Falcons wingers shine in latest Opta stats

Tuesday 28 February 2017

Newcastle Falcons players were once again prominent in the weekly Opta stats, with wingers Vereniki Goneva and Sinoti Sinoti topping the charts.

For the second week in a row Sinoti (pictured) was top of the 'defenders beaten' category, having stepped his way past, through and round nine Exeter Chiefs players.

Fellow Falcon Callum Chick was third, having beaten seven defenders at Sandy Park.

Try-scorer Goneva was top for metres made (178) and clean breaks (4), with the Fijian also joint top for carries with 18.

The Falcons are next in action on Sunday when they play host to Aviva Premiership champions Saracens. Tickets for the 2pm kick-off are available by calling 0871 226 6060 or by clicking here.
