PLAYER INTERVIEW: Remy Marginet on home debut

French international half-back Remy Marginet is expecting a tough game on Sunday afternoon when Newcastle Thunder welcome Whitehaven RLFC to Kingston Park Stadium (KO 3pm)

The French international has been making a big impact since arriving from  Palau Broncos at the end of May, with two eye-catching performances and three tries in that time.

With both those games taking place on the road, Sunday’s match marks the first opportunity for Thunder fans to see the new man in action, with Marginet hailing the welcome he has been given by his teammates for allowing him to perform.

Speaking to Thunder TV he said, “The boys are very good with me so I feel comfortable and I feel happy in the games, so it is more easy for me to play good.

“The boys say it will be tough this Sunday and it is very important for us for the championship and our aim to go up.”
