North & South Origin Coach Needed

North & South Origin Coach Needed

3rd August 2017

We are on the lookout for people to coach this year’s North and South Origin sides.

Following on from a keenly contested North East Origin series least year, rugby league players from North or the Tyne have established they are the best in the region, after securing a 2-1 series win in Newcastle Thunder’s North East Origin series.

In an exciting and entertaining match, the North fought back from a 22-8 deficit with half an hour remaining to take a 26-28 win with a try in the dying embers of the game.

Growing from a one off fixture in 2015, the 2016 edition of North East Origin saw players from Cramlington Rockets, Newcastle Knights, Wallsend Eagles and Whitely Bay Barbarians turn out for the North of Tyne, while the South attracted representation from Durham Demons Gateshead Storm, Jarrow Vikings, Peterlee Pumas and Sunderland with all participating players playing their part in making quality games that provided an exciting focal point during the off season.

The 2017 North East Origin will again be over a 3 game series and we are now looking for coaches to get on board.
