Club Statement – 2020 season

Newcastle Thunder acknowledges this evening’s statement from the RFL regarding the abandonment of the 2020 Betfred League 1 season.

The club also acknowledges the statement from Toronto Wolfpack regarding the Canadian club’s withdrawal from the 2020 Coral Challenge Cup, whom Thunder were due to face in round six of rugby league’s oldest knock-out competition.

The club will communicate with supporters in the coming days on the implications for us that will result from these decisions.

In the meantime, we hope fans will be as excited as everyone at the club to learn which games will be played at our Kingston Park Stadium home in the 2021 Rugby League World Cup on Tuesday morning.
