  1. Newcastle Thunders Pride kit for the Magic weekend curtain raiser against Bradford at Kingston Park
  2. There were 4 local lads in the 21 man squad, isaac Noakes, Alex Donaghy, Dan Coates and Nathan Clemmitt who have all had game time recently but only isaac made the team last night (and scored 2 tries)
  3. Yeah they were supposed to be playing Doncaster first game on the Saturday
  4. Thunder have confirmed the magic weekend Friday night curtain raiser vs Bradford
  5. Thunder loose too leigh as expected but keep it closer than most people's predictions at 34 - 18
  6. And another A lot of missed conversion from thunder today, only made 2 from 9 I think
  7. Result of yesterdays North South origin game if you haven't seen it
  8. Definitley very strong links between Newcastle Thunder and Northumbria University. I think there are at least 6 current Northumbria players have links to the Thunder, most of those being ex-academy. Most notable at the moment is Alex Donaghy who started at fullback for the Thunder yesterday and 3 out of the 4 who were playing for the north of England team yesterday are ex academy. Also the head coach at Northumbria Uni is former Thunder head coach Jason Payne (he did used to hold both positions at the same time) and the second team coach Adam Houston used to be part of the Academy coaching setup.
  9. There's apparently 'thunderbolt side detail' on it but can't make it out on the released images
  10. When they released pictures of it they said it was for the January friendlies but then they've had it on the first 2 games, if you look there is no Macron badge on it, no manufacturer at all, seems there has been some issue getting the new strips done in time **just seen a news item on website saying it had been delayed by Covid and will be worn for first time Feb19th against Whitehaven
  11. Two games in to the season and Newcastle Thunder finally release images of this seasons strips but they won't be avaiable till the end of the month! The light blue change strip is 'A modern version of 1999's inaugural away shirt from the Gateshead days'
