Harlequins climbed to third in the Premiership as they dismantled bottom-placed Newcastle at Kingston Park.
Tries from Max Crumpton, Nathan Earle, Gabriel Ibitoye and Jack Clifford had a bonus point in the bag by half-time.
Alex Dombrandt added to that tally early in the second half with a fifth as Quins threatened to run riot.
Newcastle did respond with tries of their own through Vereniki Goneva and Callum Chick but the deficit was too much for Dean Richards’ men to make up.
