Thunder v Keighley re-arrangement confirmed

Newcastle Thunder’s Betfred League 1 fixture against Keighley Cougars will take place on Sunday 22 April, the club have confirmed. (KO 2pm)

Originally set as Thunder’s opening league fixture of the season on March 4, the game against the Cougars fell afoul of the Beast from the East, along with the rest of that weekend’s League 1 action.

Following confirmation that Kingston Park Stadium will not be hosting a semi-final in the European Rugby Challenge Cup for sister club Newcastle Falcons, Thunder have neem able to reschedule the game for their preferred playing day that weekend.

Match tickets purchased for the original match will remain valid and should be used by supporters to access the stadium on the day.

Tickets for this and other confirmed home fixtures up until Bradford Bulls on Friday May 18 are now on sale, starting from £10 for adults.
