RE-SIGNING – Craig continues at Kingston Park

Tyler Craig has agreed to a new deal with Newcastle Thunder that will see the talented winger remain at Kingston Park Stadium for 2019.

Making 13 appearances for the club in 2018, taking his total 25 since joining back in 2017, Craig continued to play an important role for the team, with six tries and great shifts in attack and defence.

Having agreed to a new contract with Thunder, the former York City Knights man is hopeful of achieving more and is excited by the prospects for the team in the new season.

Craig said: “It was a really easy decision to re-sign with Thunder. It’s a club on the up and I want to be part of that.

“It’s an exciting place to be and with the squad we’ve got I think we can be involved in the playoffs again and I’m looking forward to showing what I am capable of.”

Newcastle Thunder head coach Jason Payne said: “I’m delighted Tyler will once again be with us, he put in some very good performances last year and really started to get back to his best.

“Ty is a good professional who looks after himself and is always trying to improve, I’m sure that he will be aiming for a big year and I’m excited to see what he produces.’

Craig joins Mo Agoro, Harry Aldous, Jack Aldous, Jared Blanke, Keal Carlile, Jed Charlton, Rhys Clarke, Dan Coates, Liam Finn, Conor Fitzsimmons, Kieran Hudson, Kieran Gill, Sam Luckley, Remy Marginet, Liam McAvoy, Aaron Ollett, Liam Richmond, Alex Rowe, Niall Sidney, Evan Simons, Misi Taulapapa, David Weetman and Lewis Young in Thunder’s 2019 squad.
