Typically Goode kick puts Cooke in after 45 seconds

Typically Goode kick puts Cooke in after 45 seconds

Brive were impressive on Thursday night as an Andy Goode inspired performance saw them beating the Newcastle Falcons by 36-22 in the European Challenge Cup.

The Stade Municipal fans were on their feet within 45 seconds of kick-off as a Falcons error under the high ball meant that Brive found themselves deep in the opposition half.

The ball was swung to former Leicester Tigers kingpin Goode, who showed a superb bit of composure and class as his deft kick over the defence allowed South African Ronnie Cooke to dive onto it for the try.

Goode had a fantastic night as he kicked 21 points for his new club and created two of his team's three tries.

The loss for Newcastle means that despite being at the top of Pool Four by way of having scored more tries than Brive, they'll be under added pressure as they travel to Parma next month, having not won away in ten months.

The camera angles on this try aren't brilliant unfortunately, but the kick and the dive combined make for a lovely piece of finishing, and a wonderful display of skill by the two players involved.

It was a try when the Brive player runs like 5 meters short to the ingoal , but instead of pass the ball to his support(who had all the time an space to score) , he gets tackled and form a ruck .....

I kind of like the video angles-- bigger picture of what the supporting players are doing. It'd be nice to add on a highlight closeup if one can be found, cuz that's a great collect for the try.

I don't what was better, the Goode kick, or Cooke catching it on the full.
