  1. Really busy week at the Thunder this week, Nick Newman and Matthew Wright signed then they've just announced they've taken Muizz Mustapha on loan from Leeds for a month. Looks like we're going all in to get promotion this year, also know as the dash to get out before Ottawa arrive. https://www.thunderrugby.co.uk/on-field/rhinos-mustapha-joins-on-loan/
  2. Newcastle Rugby (ie Thunder and Falcons) is owned by Semoure Kurdi who is worth £8 million according to ruck.co.uk
  3. Even poorer show is that they're not even on the OurLeague app!
  4. Leazes Park is right behind the Leazes Stand at St James and has plenty of open space so this would work in Newcastle as well if it comes back.
  5. Actually met him with one of my sons at a Thunder Kids festival before the Keighley game last Sunday. He was going around having pictures taken with all the teams whilst they weren't playing and doing a bit of a QA with them all, seems a really nice lad plus heard nothing but good things about him as a player, York fans seem disappointed that they didn't resign him.
  6. New signing Joel Edwards in the Thunder squad for he first time for the game against Hunslet along with Mikey Lewis, a 17 year old half back who's arrived on an initial months loan from Hull KR. Plus Misi Taulapapa back after his 4 match suspension. Looking a strong squad right now.
  7. Squad of 22, 20 outfield and 2 net-minders. 1 Net-minder and 5 skaters on ice at a time, changes constant with player's other than net-minder tending to be on ice not much more than a minute at a time. Net-minders will play the full 60 mins unless they're having a mare. Game in play for 60 mins as clock stops with every stoppage. Top defencemen will play up to 30mins a game, forwards more like 20. Playing games on back to back days considered normal.
  8. If there is a sport in the UK that gets ignored by the media worse than RL its got to be Ice Hockey. The National Team over the last couple weeks has just been playing in the top level of the World Championships for the first time in over 20 years playing the likes of Canada, Finland and USA but not seen anything in the media. Last night they beat France 4-3 in overtime having been down 0-3 after half the game and as a result have maintained there place in the top level at Frances expense. I found this out on the American sports channel ESPN's website, the BBC nothing on the main page, nothing on the sport page, they don't even have an Ice Hockey section you have to look in Winter Sports where there is finally a report!
  9. According to the Thunder web site this relates back to something that was said in the game against Coventry in February! How does it take nearly a month and a half till a charge is brought?
  10. 4 games with Sunday's game against Oldham having counted as the first. Still know idea what happened.
  11. Don't know what happened but Missi looking at a 4-8 match ban with a Grade E classification. https://www.rugby-league.com/article/54665/disciplinary--match-review-panel
  12. Just back from Newcastle thunders SPARC festival that my son was playing in. It seemed to go really well, kids were enjoying it and having good fun despite the pouring rain. By the end all teams were taking full advantage of the power plays, rewinding a play, doubling up points etc. For a first ever running was really impressed.
  13. Here's the thunder squad, Aston straight in in place of Jy-Mel Coleman and a first appearance of Kieran Gill who we have on a season long loan from Cas but hasn't played yet this season, no DR's from Wakefield this week as with cup game. Check out @ThunderRugby’s Tweet:
  14. It's about a 2 hour drive each way, that shouldn't be a problem .... just ask Liam Finn ?
