Player Pondering’s – Nick Newman

Half Back Nick Newman is expecting a young and enthusiastic Coventry Bears side when Newcastle Thunder face his old club in the Betfred League 1 this Sunday.

With Thunder’s final regular-season position playing a such a decisive role upon the pathway to the Betfred League One Play-off final, Kingston Park hosts a fixture which carries significant importance.

Speaking with Thunder TV, Newman said: “Coventry Bears are a team that like to capitalise on other teams errors. I’ve experienced it first hand when I played down there for the first half of the season.

“We need wary of that as they will make us pay but if we complete at a high rate then the points will come.”
