Esh Group Eagles Newcastle needed Friday’s 97 – 89 win at home against Worcester Wolves to put them back on track after the previous weekend’s double reversal at the hands of Leicester and Bristol.

The Magnetic Appeal of The Eagles

It’s unusual for me to being doing a blog on the day of the game and I am probably being optimistic that many people will read it and to be honest I’m probably being optimistic that anybody reads my drivel at all but, here goes anyway. Really just wanted to cover three aspects. One of…
