Bob Beswick First Team Hooker Sponsor Available to sponsor - Call 0191 214 2896 Ireland international Bob Beswick has made a transatlantic switch for 2020, as the vastly experienced hooker joins Newcastle Thunder from Toronto Wolfpack. Heading into his 17th professional season, Beswick will be one of the most experienced players to ever pull on a Thunder shirt, with more than 400 games played in his career to date. Making his Super League debut in 2004 with Wigan, Beswick played in the top flight for two years before establishing himself as one of the most competitive and creative hookers at Championship level across a superb ten-year stint. As well as having a wealth of experience at club level, the 34-year-old is one of the most capped internationals for Ireland, with 27 to his name. A player who has proven to be an exceptional leader both on and off the field through a high level of professionalism, his tremendous work ethic often sees him top the tackle count and he’ll undoubtedly be a key figure in Thunder’s 2020 campaign.
