Newcastle Thunder have strengthened their forward options for the 2020 season, after securing the services of experienced Ireland international Colton Roche.

A product of the Leeds Rhinos academy structure, the 26-year-old arrives at Thunder as a powerful and direct runner who is renowned for bringing intent to his side’s defensive contact.

With more than 100 games under his belt since making his debut in 2012, Roche is experienced head who has played across the divisions including Super League with Huddersfield Giants.

Able to play at second-row and centre Roche offers a degree of versatility to Thunder for the 2020 season that head coach Simon Finnigan will be keen to make full use of.
