  1. Thunder set to open magic weekend on the Saturday when they play Doncaster at St James Park. Great news for the club and the sport in the region!
  2. Derby The Diggers Bright yellow Jersey with black shorts and yellow socks. Same colour as diggers. JCB as the headquarters are only a 30 minute drive from Derby and the owners sons friends nephew will be bank rolling the team. Will play out of Derby county's ground. Josh Hodgson will be the star player
  3. Thinking back I played for the club back in 2006 and it was still called Newcastle eagles then. I know Newcastle Knights merged with Gateshead storm and became Newcastle storm and I'm pretty sure that was 2010/11 before finally going back to Gateshead storm a year late. Someone's obviously not done the research to claim it has been that long ago
  4. Know that the semi finals were a weird format. Semi final 1 was Jarrow vs Edinburgh with Jarrow winning and going straight through to the final. The second was Cramlington vs West View. With west view winning that. This Saturday sees west view playing Edinburgh in a play off semi final with the winner then going to the final to play Jarrow on the 17th of August.
  5. 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. http://www.pitchero.com/clubs/whitleybaybarbariansrlc/news/senior-mens-side-eyes-2018-return-2150708.html
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. Hopefully they can, would be a shame to lose another team in the region after we have already lost 3 clubs from last season.
  13.

  14. Half time score: Wath Brow 4 : Thunder 20
