Burke turns back time

Former Wallabies match winner Matt Burke turned back the clock with a seven penalty crusade to tame Leicester Tigers in English Premiership action.

Burke kicked seven penalties as the Newcastle Falcons won 24-16, while another former international, in New Zealand’s Justin Marshall, inspired Leeds Tykes’ sixth win in their last eight matches.

Leeds, with a third successive home win, beat Worcester 21-15 to ease relegation prospects.
