#3100253 Newcastle Thunder v Raiders

Posted by ThunderArmy on 04 April 2015 - 07:16 AM

The sold tickets were evidently 1000 free , i would estimate without our following aprox 100 the net in attendance would have been aprrox 400. for the thunder. Never understand  why clubs do this . 
However when playing away we make the same mistakes , their first try a charge down from a panic field kick and after we had fought back going into the lead ,lo and behold dropped the ball from the restart and conceded a try which was minutes before half time. . So we were always behind the 8 ball for the second half and playing panic passing losing possession early .
Early days greenshoots but only 1 conversion from 5 , Not easy positions but will be very important in future games the scoreline could have been 36- 30


Someone always looking to put us down, you dont know how many tickets were free etc, at the end of the day crowd could of been 300 people would say thats awful etc, we get 1522 and your talking about free tickets jesus christ who cares, there was lots of youngsters in attendance which is great to see and it shows people in the north east do like rugby league also a few falcons fans there nice of them to come and watch with them saying they will definatly be back to watch us again, 2 very good sides who will be up there come the end of the season for sure i liked you guys played well, say score could of been 36-30?...1st half do you remember our fullback yesterday jordan meads he attempts to restart the game by tapping the ball on his foot though somehow it hits his foot and falls on the floor crazy stuff so you collect and score from that mistake never seen that happen before though meads made up for it with fantastic pass to tali to score just before half time hooter though that mistake gifted you a try it would of been our set of 6 though he knocked it on after tapping ball on his foot to restart the game haha, also to the chap who thought it was ok to smoke in the stand, bang out of order when he was told before game that he could not smoke in the stand, anyway all the best for the season until you next play us,boom boom thunder army!!!

Rugby League fans in the North East are giving their backing to Newcastle Thunder ahead of the 2015 season in every increasing numbers, with the club reporting strong season ticket sales for the new Kingstone Press League 1 season.

Thunder have already sold a third more season tickets than last season a full two months out from the first competitive game of the season, against Barrow Raiders on April 3rd and are hopeful this number will continue to rise in the build up to the start of the campaign, which will see games switch from Gateshead International Stadium to Kingston Park.

Priced at just £99 for adults, £69 for senior citizens and students, Thunder season tickets grant entry to 11 Kingstone Press League 1 fixtures against teams including the Raiders, York City Knights and newly promoted Coventry Bears, as well as the Saturday of the Magic Weekend at St James’ Park.

Super League’s annual jamboree hits the home of Newcastle United on May 30th and 31st and Thunder season ticket holders can enjoy all the day one action, which sees Salford Red Devils v Widnes Vikings, Hull FC v Hull KR and Leeds Rhinos v Wigan Warriors at no additional cost.

Thunder season tickets also offer the chance for families to enjoy a day at an exciting sporting event at a top class venue at a reduced cost with all adult and concession season tickets able to claim up to two free Under 16s tickets. Additional juniors not fitting in with this provision can be added for only £59.

Thunder enjoyed their most competitive season in six years in 2014, making the end of season play offs and with the majority of last year’s squad being retained, with quality additions like Paupa New Guinea internationals Mark Mexico, Jason Tali and Charlie Wabo alongside Craig Boot, Fran Welsh and Dayne Craig.

With a new intake of emerging local talent like Daniel Bleek, Zach Clark, Paddy Hargreaves and Sam Luckley, 2015 promises to provide exciting times for Thunder, get your season ticket now and make sure you don’t miss a minute in a season where every minute counts.

To book a Thunder season card, or tickets for individual games, call the ticket hotline on  0191 214 5588 (option 1)
