SQUAD ANNOUNCEMENT – Bradford Bulls 6th July

Newcastle Thunder will travel to Odsall Stadium on Friday evening looking for a return to winning ways against Bradford Bulls, as they aim to bounce back from last weekend’s loss at York City Knights.

It was a match that got away from Thunder as York were able to ride out a relentless attacking storm, which saw Jason Payne’s side batter the Knights defensive line for the best part of an hour before ultimately losing out 24-6

Having played out a thoroughly entertaining fixture at Kingston Park ahead of the Magic Weekend, Thunder will be hoping to build on that and take what the outside world would view as a shock win.

Naming an 18-man squad for the game, Payne is unable to call some key personnel into his match-day consideration, with Remy Marginet, Tee Ritson and Lewis Young all missing through injury.

Thunder are however boosted with the potential return of Evan Simons and the incoming of Kieran Gill from dual registration partners Castleford Tigers.
