Newcastle really do have everything needed to be a SL club, great management, stadium, youth system.

They don’t, they need a SL standard first team 😉

Get the basic right, no short term fix. Well done. Newcastle is a sports mad city, built for league

Great to see, there are clubs in the higher leagues that are dead weight and are making up numbers, it's only a matter of time that natural selection will see the organic growth of expansion clubs replace them. (That's if the Yorkshirecentric RFL will allow it to happen).

Wakefield has an Academy??

As you say my friend... This really is cause for celebration!

What next for this West Yorkshire behemoth... A ground??

No need for that really is there? This is a thread about Newcastle not Wakefield.

What’s the deal with the 2 u16’s sides NT?? A big squad of players getting a run out with 2 games?

We have an u15’s and played them against Barrow 

Cool. Thanks NT. Do the thunder run RL sessions/clinics in the local schools and is any RL played in or planned for areas like Hexham, Prudhoe and haltwhistle etc?

After the Gateshead Thunder was ‘merged’ it could have died. Obviously some good administrators have patiently worked to get NT going, then succeed.
