Foden sends Saints up to third

Northampton moved up to third place in the Aviva Premiership with a 32-14 win against beleaguered Newcastle Falcons at Kingston Park.

England full-back Ben Foden scored two cleverly worked tries at the start of each half to put the Saints in the driving seat.

Giant prop Soane Tonga'uiha was driven over for the visitors' third while former Falcons man Tom May delivered the fourth try - and the bonus point - four minutes from time with his first touch after coming on as a late replacement. Suka Hufanga scored a first-half try for Newcastle.
