Then came Peterson’s loss of control and Freeman’s slick finish. Newcastle struck first after the interval when the referee, Karl Dickson, awarded a penalty try and sent Mitchell to the sin-bin and when the Falcons replacement Jamie Blamire went over from close range, Northampton were wobbling. Remarkably, they were back to within 10 points when Adam Radwan was next to cross but Hutchinson eased any Northampton nerves by going over in the corner. The Breakdown: sign up and get our weekly rugby union email. Robinson hit Biggar late in the buildup and was given his marching orders, sparking chaos and two more tries for Freeman – the first a delightful move, started by Hutchinson from his own line and the second a cute kick and chase – to complete the hat-trick.
Replacements: Blamire, Mulipola, Kenny, Merrick, Fearns, Nordi-Kelemeti, Haydon-Wood, Wacokecoke. Not considered for Saints selection: Matthew Arden, Conor Carey, Teimana Harrison, Ollie Newman, Tom Wood. Most recent meeting: Wednesday, March 30, 2022: Saints 34 Newcastle 26 (Premiership Rugby Cup)Tom's preview: If you'd said on March 5 that come the final day of the regular season Saints would need a win to book a play-off semi-final spot, some psychological assessment may have been suggested. But here we are, three months on, with Chris Boyd's side a victory away from booking their place in the Gallagher Premiership end-of-season shootout.
Northampton clinch final playoff spot with 10-try romp over NewcastleTommy Freeman enhanced his burgeoning reputation with a stunning hat-trick as Northampton romped to the victory they required to book their place in the playoffs for the first time in three years. They racked up 10 tries against a largely dismal Newcastle who, but for a brief rally early in the second half, failed to give Dean Richards an appropriate send-off in his last match as director of rugby.
For Chris Boyd, however, the show goes on and while he will also leave at the end of the campaign, Northampton’s season is far from over. Northampton will face a sterner test when they make the short journey to face Leicester next week but they can go with optimism, having chalked up a sixth bonus-point win in their last seven league matches. When games open up like they did here there is no Premiership side more dangerous than Northampton’s great showmen, but as Boyd acknowledged afterwards, Leicester will pose an altogether different challenge. “Our worst two performances this year have both been against Leicester, ” he said.

“He’s got that x-factor, ” added Boyd. “If he can stay fit and strong and healthy and he’s a good student of the game, it’ll be interesting to see where he ends up. ”Northampton came into the match knowing victory would seal fourth place, regardless of Gloucester’s result against Saracens, and they were given a considerable helping hand by a Falcons side with just one league win since November. Dan Biggar was given the freedom of Franklin’s Gardens while Rory Hutchinson scythed through the Newcastle defence with an ease that will not have pleased Richards, who leaves his job after a decade at Kingston Park. Newcastle were not helped by a second-half red card for Sean Robinson – “harsh” according to Richards – nor a mindless yellow for the second-row Greg Peterson a minute before half-time for lashing out at Lewis Ludlam and their woes were compounded when Freeman went over in the left corner for the fifth try before the interval.
