Biography

26-year-old Blair first joined Thunder back in 2015 after crossing codes, switching from Percy Park RFC and has since proved to be a talented player in the 13 man code.

Part of the club’s contingent of northeast natives, Blair has made a total of 21 appearances for the team across his two seasons and scored a total of ten tries, with his hard running and direct lines proving to be an effective weapon in Thunder’s attacking sets.

Beginning his rugby league career in the centres, his second season saw him primarily operate on the wing, where he was able to make effective use his pace to arc around defences or outstrip defenders while chasing down kicks through.

Having been a regular feature in that position towards the end of the 2016 season, Blair is hoping to make one of the wing shirts his own in 2017 and help propel Thunder towards the playoffs.
