Newcastle Thunder Academy 16 Halifax ERA 48

Quarter Finals National Cup | 02/03/2016

Halifax ERA stormed into the quarter finals of the National Cup with a superb performance at Kingston Park, home of Newcastle Thunder and Newcastle Falcons.

The speed of the backline proved to be the difference on the wide 3G pitch with tries from Lewis Hosty (2), Lee Johnson, Harry Burgess, Finley Hickey, Callum Knight and Tom Bernard. The only downside of the game for Halifax ERA was the concerning knee injury to skipper Ben Jackson who had to leave the field early on. Goals (6) from Ethan E-Sharp.
