Newcastle Thunder have confirmed the re-signing of prop-forward Liam McAvoy ahead of the 2021 Betfred League 1 season.

Following the signing, McAvoy said: “I’m very happy to be signing back with Newcastle Thunder again in 2021. It’s an exciting time to be at the club with Denis and everyone behind the scenes pushing it in the right direction and I’m sure we’ve every chance for success next season.

“I’m just back from Australia, where I trained with the Newcastle Knights cup side and I learned a lot from how they do things down there.

“I’m buzzing to get back into it again with the Thunder boys and bringing those experiences from the last 12 months into pre-season and the 2021 campaign.”
