  1. Great to see the club looking to get the open age team back up and running after a few years away from the game. Was a shame to see them go after the success that that they had in recent times.

    England Squad

    Good squad fine with Heighington being included since he has played for England before but can't understand McQueen being included especially since he has played for Queensland in the past.
  3. Very sad times, played for barbarians past couple of seasons and would think that we would go from strength to strength after winning trophies for the past 3 years but couldn't get the players as the main rugby union lot decided that they were wanting to focus on union. We also didn't have a proper coach last season so think players were disinterested.
  4. From what I have heard they are planning on running one big league with a merit league for A teams. Think the clubs are close to what finished the league last year, i know Cattrick have started there open age team again so they are the only addition that i've heard for this year. Most likely find everything out end of this month with league starting last saturday of april or first saturday of may like the past few seasons.
  5. Wallsend Eagles won the game 38-10. Wallsend were too strong for the Barbarians who put in a great first half performance but the experience of the Wallsend team showed.
  6. Barbarians and Eagles meet in Division 1 vs Premier Division Cup final Clash This Wednesday Kingston Park sees the final of the North East Rugby league cup, with Division 1 leaders Whitley Bay Barbarians taking on Premier Division leaders Wallsend Eagles in what promises to be a most entertaining game. Both teams have had a tough route to the final, the Eagles knocking out 2014 Premier Division Winners Jarrow Vikings in the early rounds as well as fellow premier Division Side Cramlington Rockets. "We are looking forward to playing in the cup final especially at Kingston Park and is something which has eluded us for the past few years. Whitley Bay will be a strong physical side and we have to make sure we are solid down the middle to compete in the game. The pitch at Kingston Park suits our fast paced game so looking forward to seeing how the games plays out. We hope it is a good game for the neutral to come and watch with the top 2 sides from each division going head to head". Alan Stevenson - Coach Wallsend Eagles Whereas the Barbarians took a very different route, seeing off Premier Division sides Durham Demons and Darlington in the earlier rounds and then coming up against Division 1 title rivals Gateshead Storm A in the semi-finals. A game which was narrowly lost by the Barbarians, however discussions after the game between both sides led to the game being replayed a week later in a league / cup double header unfortunately in which Gateshead Storm A where unable to field a team. "The game of Rugby league in the North East is going from strength to strength. I think it is a nice change to see Whitley Bay Barbarians getting good performances week in week out. I would like to mention Chris Parker and Rob Jones of Gateshead Storm showed real sportsmanship to let the Barbarians through to the final. I am sure the game against Wallsend Eagles will be exciting as both teams have pace and power through their squads." Seamus McCallion Head Coach of Whitley Bay. The game will be played at Kingston Park on Wednesday 29th July, with a 7:30pm kick off entry is free through the Tap and Tackle and both sides supporters should be present in full force. If you've never experienced Rugby League before this will be a perfect introduction to the game at a local level with two of the areas longest running sides.
  7. Think the main cause for top division losing a lot of clubs is teams going up who aren't quite ready for it and then get battered each game so players lose interest.
  8. Hopefully they can, would be a shame to lose another team in the region after we have already lost 3 clubs from last season.

  12. I am contacting you on behalf of Whitley Bay Barbarians ARLFC we are looking to organise a preseason friendly for charity and then possibly play a return fixture in the close season. We would be looking to host the preseason game on either April 11th/12th or 18th/19th depending on availability of our home pitch. I wondered if you had the contact details of any social sides who I can contact to arrange a game. We will be raising funds for Marie Curie during the day and hope to have a raffle with a number of prizes, or if you can hep us with any raffle prizes that would also be greatly appreciated Thanks Chris Coates Chris Coates <>

    new signings Nice to see the signing of 3 PNG players for next season
  14. 2014 marks the 20th anniversary of Whitley Bay Barbarians. In celebration of 20 years of the the club, we have decided to dedicate a year to charity fundraising. Our chosen charity is Cancer Research UK in memory of our founder member's wife. For the occasion the club is organising a charity match. The match is set to be against the current players vs the old boys. The game is set to be played at Percy Park RFC. Would be great to have any support from the Rugby League community if that was being in the area and coming watching the game or donating some money to the just giving page we have set up. Just giving page: Thanks
