After a regular season full of adversity, the season looks like it will end for Newcastle Eagles in the play-offs after a fine Derby Day win over Durham Palatinates. That was Head Coach Chris Bunten’s goal after a campaign that has been hit with injuries and departures throughout.

Even yesterday’s 5-point win over a gritty and tenacious Durham side had pre-game drama with Australian guard Jorjah Smith choosing to curtail her time in Newcastle early and fly home. It left a hole on the Eagles bench that Bunten was hoping others would step into and they did.
