Stevenson rotated in after 2 well taken tries last week
A big test this weekend for our boys
A Toby Flood penalty as the only score of a scrappy second half in which neither side got going, the Falcons laying enough of a foundation to see them home in the end.
The visitors were made to work from the outset but led 15-9 at half-time, home centre Javier Rojas Alvarez slotting two early penalties to Toby Flood’s one in a keenly-contested start.
