Thunder strike winning note

Newcastle Thunder bounced back to winning ways in the Kingstone Press League 1 with a 40-26 victory over Hemel Stags at Kingstone Park.

Newcastle, coming in from two successive defeats, had to stage comebacks in the first half, with Benn Hardcastle and Charlie Webo helping to turn the tide in their favour twice after tries from Jymel Coleman and Derrell Olpherts for Hemel.

With Hardcastle\'s second making it a half-time lead of 22-12, Newcastle proceeded to make the game safe with tries from Stuart Kain and another Hardcastle effort followed by Ali Blair\'s try on 67 minutes.

It seemed to do the trick, though Hemel did grab a consolation try in the final minute of the match courtesy of Alex Anthony.
