Challenge Cup tie moves to Feb 15th

Newcastle Thunder’s Coral Challenge Cup third round tie will now take place on Saturday 15th February (KO 2pm)

Originally scheduled to take place last Sunday, the game was among a list of sporting events that fell foul of the weather as Storm Ciara batter the UK and was initially rearranged for this Sunday.

However, with Storm Dennis threatening to bring further disruptive weather over the weekend, the Cougars, Thunder and the RFL have agreed to bring the game forward by 24hrs in order to fit in with a break in the weather.

The game will now feature as the live stream game on the OuRLeague app this weekend, which can be downloaded via the app store and google play.

Downloading the app, choosing Thunder as your supported team and watching the live stream all help the club by demonstrating our ROI value to the sport’s governing body, so watching your team attempt to make a round four clash against Siddal ARLFC really is the best way to spend this coming Saturday afternoon.

For those wanting to take in some live rugby league at Kingston Park this Saturday, Thunder reserves will look to build on last weekend’s 23-16 win over Salford when they take on London Broncos reserves at 12:45.

Sadly, due to the first team now being in action away on Saturday, the planned hand out of season tickets for this weekend has been cancelled.
