Finnigan eager for League 1 kick off

Simon Finnigan is eager to get this year’s Betfred League 1 season underway this afternoon (Sunday 1st March) as Thunder travel to the midlands to face Coventry Bears.

The league campaign was originally scheduled to begin back in February, but with mother nature playing havoc and forcing fixture cancellations, Thunder have had to focus on the Coral Challenge Cup in recent weeks.

For Finnigan, it has been a successful fortnight with the only blemish coming in the form of a long-term injury to Brad Walker following the third-round tie at Keighley.
