Newcastle Thunder Preview



The Bears head to Newcastle tomorrow for a pivotal fixture in their hunt for a League One Shield Final place when they take on a Thunder side who have already booked their place in the final.

Following recent victories over North Wales Crusaders and Gloucester All Golds the Bears head into the game in fine form and will be confident of challenging the shield leaders on their home turf. 

Speaking ahead of the game Head Coach Tom Tsang said: "Im really looking forward to the game against newcastle. They have been playing great since the shield phase of the competition. We had a competitive match earlier in the year, where i thought they deserved to win but we were unlucky with a couple of yellow cards in the second half which changed the game. It will be good to go up there and measure ourselves. We have been in good form ourselves and still have a mathematical chance of reaching the shield final, so we will be doing our best keep ourselves in contention."
