Whitehaven have announced they will be travelling to Kingston Park on Sunday 14th March to take on Newcastle Thunder in a low-key friendly fixture.
The friendly will see the first run out for both teams in just over a year following the suspension and eventual cancellation of the 2020 campaign due to Covid-19.
The fixture will not be streamed via any social media channels or OurLeague.
Both teams will be keen to get some match sharpness before their Challenge Cup First Round ties. Newcastle travel to Swinton Lions, while Whitehaven host Dewsbury Rams.
