Sat 15 - Sun 16 Jan: Pre-Season Friendlies Match Thread

Recommended Posts

The individual match threads for pre-season games haven't really justified their existence on here with hardly anyone posting in them, so I'm posting up just one thread this week to cover all the games, to see how that goes.

Salford Red Devils v Swinton Lions    14:00

Sunday 16th January
Barrow Raiders v Newcastle Thunder    15:00
Bradford Bulls v Hull FC    15:00 (Danny Brough Testimonial)
Featherstone Rovers v Leeds Rhinos    15:00
Halifax Panthers v Wakefield Trinity    15:00 (Scott Grix Testimonial)
Widnes Vikings v Batley Bulldogs    15:00 (Danny Craven Testimonial)
Workington Town v Whitehaven    14:00

I Results are not too important in Pre season hit outs but one game will be interesting, the Cumbria Derby, it is a memorial cup game with huge pride at stake. Both teams will be desperate to win the Trophy and bragging rights so will be fielding a strong a side as possible or as COVID allows.

Thunder have a mixture of youth and experience out at Barrow. It'll be interesting to see how we go but think game time is more important, a result would be nice but not the end of the world as going to Cumbria is always tough.

Yes it is just a friendly but with the signings Newcastle have made, the experienced coaching staff and director of Rugby, being full time too, anything less than a decent win would not look good against what will be an under strength Barrow side.
