A strong local voice in the Thunder squad for the best part of a decade, second row Clarke is one of the leaders with the club’s squad.

The 27-year-old club stalwart has notched up over 120 appearances for the club to date, in two stints on Tyneside in a career that started back in 2009.

Adding in his appearances for York City Knights and Whitehaven, Clarke has played in almost 200 matches as of the end of 2018 and brings a wealth of knowledge as one of the most experienced players at the club.

Renowned for his blockbusting breaks through opposition defences and crashing, close-range tries Clarke is comfortable in all positions across the pack and passes on his experience to the grassroots of rugby league talent as head coach at Gateshead Storm
