  1. Newcastle Thunder have confirmed they wont be participating in the Autumn tournament: https://www.thunderrugby.co.uk/general/thunder-look-to-2021/
  2. Newcastle Thunder's confirmation of withdrawl from the Challenge cup: https://www.thunderrugby.co.uk/general/thunder-look-to-2021/
  3. Yeah most years they end up having a session down on the beach with the full boys and girls section together. Always a bit of fun and a good laugh. The girls section were supposed to be off down under this year after saving up for it for 2 years, haven't heard what's happening with that now.
  4. Cramlington Rockets won Community Club of the year in 2017 and I believe they used the award that came with it to help set up a new club Alnwick Bears. None of the NE community clubs have their own clubhouse and facilities, mainly using RU and school facilities. For example my 2 boys play for Whitley Bay Barbarians who's boy section play out of North Shields RFC and girls section play out of Seghill RFC, and Cramlington Rockets play out of Cramlington Learning Village.
  5. The Thunder aren't tennants, Newcastle Rugby own the ground and run both the Thunder and the Falcons. Thunder might be the little brother but no rent to pay.
  6. Yarm have been doing well in NE Rugby League junior section for the last few years, Hartlepool Hurricanes came on the scene last year and Newcastle Thunder employed a development officer for area last year.
  7. Rhys Clarke of Newcastle Thunder's thoughts on the matter on Twitter before the announcement that the League 1 season was canned:
  8. Edinbrugh Eagles played in and won the North East Rugby League Men's open age league/championship last season and I belive were due to take part again this season and Strathmore SIlverbacks have been involved in the Cup competition in recent years.
  9. Mick Hogan in hospital due to breathing difficulties, get well soon
  10. The bairn wants warrington home, no doubt if we get a draw like that tomorrow, everything will get shut down on Wednesday
