Team News

Matt Peet has selected a youthful side to face Newcastle Thunder which includes some players from the Academy as well as first team players. Jai Field is likely to feature having missed a lot of the action in 2021 through injury as well as new signings Patrick Mago, Abbas Miski and Ramon Silva expected to play a part.
