Newcastle Thunder have re-signed talented young hooker Sam Blake for the 2020 Betfred League 1 season as the club begin to finalise their squad for the new campaign.

Blake was signed by Thunder back in 2018 after moving to the North East to study at Northumbria University and impressing in the student side whilst playing in the national BUCS competition.

Making five appearances that season, Blake showed glimpse of the skill and ability that marked him out as a highly rated U19 at Wakefield Trinity and as a bright young talent with a big future in the game.

Having made that impression, he was unfortunate in needing an operation that would see him miss a large portion of 2019, but having once again impressed with the university Blake has been offered another opportunity at Kingston Park to make a name for himself in senior rugby league.
