Podcast: Newcastle Thunder’s ambitions, O’Carroll on coaching & Cogger chats Huddersfield

Dave Parkinson

Adrian Jackson and Dave Parkinson return for The Final Hooter podcast ahead of the new season with Adrian having discovered Zoom!

Our hosts are joined by Liverpool Echo journalist John Lawless and reflect on the big occasions of 2020, before turning their attentions to briefly talk the demise of Toronto Wolfpack, the elevation of Leigh and the promotion of Newcastle Thunder.

Fresh from Newcastle Thunder’s media day, we hear from Director of Rugby Denis Betts about his position in lockdown and moving forward and we also chat to new head coach Eamon O’Carroll.

Adrian, Dave and John talk about retirees, Fuifui Moimoi at Rochdale and the ambitious West Wales Raiders as well as some new overseas players to Super League – including Huddersfield’s Jack Cogger, who chats to us about his move to the Giants.
