Report: Eagles WBBL 64-77 Oaklands Wolves

Previously winless Oaklands Wolves shocked pre-game favourites Newcastle Eagles as a record crowd for a WBBL fixture on Tyneside was left with little to cheer. It was a sobering case of after the Lord Mayor’s show for Chris Bunten’s misfiring Eagles as the hosts failed to capitalise on last weekend’s eye-catching win double. And it’s…
