Five changes as Thunder name 18 man squad

Jason Payne has made four changes to his match-day squad for Sunday’s Betfred League 1 fixture against Doncaster RLFC at Kingston Park (KO 2pm) as Newcastle Thunder look to avenge last weekend’s Challenge Cup exit.

Naming an 18-man squad for this weekend’s match, the roster sees the return of Joe Brown, Tom Capper, dual registered centre  Tuoyo Egodo and vice-captain Rhys Clarke, who is set to enjoy his first involvement of the season.

The club stalwart has been unavailable since undergoing knee surgery early and will be eager to contribute as his side aim to build on an excellent 16-60 win over London Skolars and build momentum in their league campaign.

Tickets for Sunday’s game are on sale now, with advanced prices of £10 for adult standing and £12 for adult seating valid until midnight on Saturday March 24.
