MATCH PACKAGE – Whitehaven RLFC

Newcastle Thunder put in one of their strongest performances of the season last weekend as they secured a 30 – 22 win over Whitehaven RLFC at Kingston Park.

Dominating large portions of the game, Thunder were able to exploit that supremacy with the team combining well to unlock the visitors’ defence and score a range of tries with plenty of variety to their attacking play.

A late rally from the visitors afforded the score-line a closer look than the game had been, but Thunder were happy to take the points and close the gap onto the top half of the Betfred League 1 table.

The clubs cameras caught the full 80 minutes with the best of the day’s action and the post-match thoughts of Ben Pointer and Jason Payne available to watch by clicking on the video above.
