Newcastle Thunder have made two changes to their 19-man squad for this Sunday’s visit of Coventry Bears, as they look to take a ninth home win of the season from the 3pm kick-off.

The changes see Aaron Ollett and Tyler Craig come into the list in line for selection for this weekend’s match, with Harry Aldous and Joe Brown the players to make way.

Retaining his place within the list is hooker Keal Carlile, who has recovered for the illness which forced his withdrawal from the team for last weekend’s clash with Oldham.

Tickets for Sunday’s game are available to book online, by calling 0871 2266060 or by visiting the Kingston Park Stadium box office, with all tickets booked by midnight saving £3 on those bought on the day.
