Gloucester banished the heartache of previous final defeats with a 32-7 win over Newcastle in the LV= Cup.

A converted Tom Voyce try, after just six minutes, and Nicky Robinson penalty gave Gloucester a 10-0 half-time lead.

Another Robinson penalty, a sublime try from Eliota Fuimaono-Sapolu and Charlie Sharples's score gave the Cherry and Whites breathing space after the break.

Luke Eves dived over for a Falcons consolation before Gloucester's Darren Dawidiuk was driven over at the death.

You've got to feel for the Falcons, but finally Gloucester have come up against a team they can beat in a cup final...

Gloucester played some good rugby, as did Newcastle. Unfortunately Newcastle made one to many errors and it cost them.

Agree with both of you

Was a decent match after a slow start - Charlie Sharples looked good (again)

I'm glad we won by a good margin. If Tom Voyce's try had been the difference, it wouldn't have counted in my book, because he once tried to take home a girl I was courting.
