Newcastle Falcons are in the quarter-finals of the Amlin Challenge Cup after a dour win over Petrarca Padova at Kingston Park on Friday.

The Falcons laboured to a 20-3 win thanks to a try by Gcobani Bobo, bolstered by a penalty try, seven points from the boot of Jimmy Gopperth and a conversion from Rob Miller.

Elsewhere, Worcester fell 8-3 to Montpellier in France, with number eight Marc Giraud's try on the hour-mark separating the two teams.

Montauban, who wanted to capitalise on any alip up by Newcastle, did what they had to do with a 27-20 win over Albi at the Stade Sapiac.
