  4. https://www.thunderrugby.co.uk/general/signing-thunder-strengthen-with-taulapapa-deal/ Newcastle Thunder’s recruitment for the 2019 Betfred League 1 season has netted another high-quality international signing, with Misi Taulapapa joining the club from Featherstone Rovers. A Samoan international, Taulapapa brings a wealth of experience to Kingston Park, having played 33 times in the NRL with Cronulla Sharks and made over 230 appearances in the Betfred Championship with Sheffield Eagles and Rovers. Adept across the backline, he primarily operates at centre or on the wing and will be expected to be another strong on-field general for the Thunder. After starting out in rugby union Taulapapa switched codes in 2004, representing Marist Richmond Brothers in the Bartercard Cup before being picked up by the New Zealand Warriors for 2006. After three seasons with the Sharks, he moved to the UK and was originally set to be a Gateshead Thunder player, before the deal ultimately fell through during a difficult time for the club. He instead enjoyed five seasons at Sheffield before moving to Featherstone in 2016. Now set to play a key role in Thunder’s quest for promotion, it is a project Taulapapa is excited to be involved in. Taulapapa joins Mo Agoro, Jack Aldous, Jared Blanke, Keal Carlile, Jed Charlton, Rhys Clarke, Dan Coates, Liam Finn, Conor Fitzsimmons, Kieran Hudson, Sam Luckley, Remy Marginet, Liam McAvoy, Aaron Ollett, Liam Richmond, Alex Rowe, Niall Sidney, Evan Simons, David Weetman and Lewis Young in Thunder’s 2019 squad. Season tickets for the new campaign to watch these exciting players in action over 11 Betfred League 1 matches are on sale now, with prices starting from just £100 for adults.

    Magic Weekend Clash?

    The fact the European Union finals are on the 11/12 May has no impact on Magic being held in Newcastle. The decision on where to take Magic Weekend is purely with Super League Europe

    So rather then everyone moan and complain, why doesn’t everyone make it their goal to get to one of the last two tests?

  13. https://www.thunderrugby.co.uk/on-field/squad-announcement-west-wales-raiders-23rd-september/ In a week where the city launched its ambitious bid to host games in the 2021 Rugby League World Cup, Newcastle Thunder are giving a glimpse of how their team might look when the game’s biggest showcase might roll into town, with a large presence of North East players in this weekend’s 19-man squad. 10 of the players in contention to play this Sunday are products of Newcastle Thunder’s academy programme and North East community clubs, with Cramlington Rockets, Durham Demons, Gateshead Storm, Jarrow Vikings Peterlee Pumas and Wallsend Eagles all represented. Half of the 10 are current features of an ever-improving junior rank with Alex Clegg and Rory Nettleton in line to make the first team debuts, along with Adam Bielby, Ollie Gowing, and Jed Charlton who have already earned that progression. They join academy graduates Sam Luckley, Niall Sidney and David Weetman and are complemented by Ali Blair and Liam Scott who have come to Thunder via the Eagles. If including players who have come through North East structures via University rugby league, the figure rises to 12, with Lewis Young and Tom Shaw both learning their trade as part of Northumbria University’s structures before moving over to Kingston Park Stadium. It is a squad that continues to show the club’s commitment to establish itself as one that can develop local talent and progress that into a first team that is complimented with talented recruited from across the globe. Tickets to see Thunder’s Northern Powerhouse are available to purchase by clicking here calling 0871 2266060 or by visiting the Kingston Park Stadium box office. Advance prices are available until 23:59 on Saturday 22nd September, offering up to a £3 saving on match day ticket prices.
