Newcastle Thunder can confirm an application to join the Betfred Championship for the 2021 season has been submitted #ThunderFamily #RugbyLeague

Thanks for all the kind words of support from people  Next season we will look to do the championship justice and continue to grow the sport across the region whilst developing our young academy

Toulouse, York and Newcastle are a ray of hope for the sport.

Good stuff. Newcastle are a really progressive, well backed club who expand the games footprint. I think they'd be a welcome addition to the Championship. 

This is exactly why they probably won’t be chosen!

If Workington had the new stadium they were supposed to for the world cup it might be closer, Donny won't think they're too far off either. Barrow are a solid option but for me sit behind others atm.

But realistically this should be Newcastle by any metric.

Other than proximity to Burtonwood or Hartshead Moor Services, which as we know are the primary metric for RL authorities in England.

Would have preferred to have gone up by winning last years play off but it seems that this is the way right now, it would be great to see Thunder there and it would help underpin the great development work, on the other hand I do feel sorry for Workington, who would have been a strong candidate but for the stadium debacle.

They have plenty people signed up, they're just choosing to announce a new one each day starting a couple weeks ago. Wednesday's announcement was the resigning of Kieran Gill taking it up to 15 announced with the promise of more to come. The list so far is now:

Kieran Gill, Bob Beswick, Rhys Clarke, Alex Clegg, Alex Donaghy, Ollie Gowing, Evan Hodgson, Kieran Hudson, Jack Johnson, Liam McAvoy, Calum Turner, Nathan Wilde, Sam Wilde, Matty Wright & Lewis Young

As for no coach, your a bit behind the times there as well as they announced Catalan assistant coach Eamon O'Carroll as head coach back on Sunday, along with director of rugby Dennis Betts signing a new 2 year deal as well.
