It was Meat Loaf, a self-confessed sports super-fan who took great pride in his performance at the 2003 NBA All Star game, who insisted two out of three ain’t bad. And as the world comes to terms with the death of the larger than life entertainer, Newcastle head coach Ian MacLeod might just agree. Prior…

Newcastle finally relinquished their increasingly flimsy grip on the BBL Cup last night as an illness and injury-ravaged Eagles slipped to a sixth defeat of the season.

Preview: Eagles vs Manchester Giants (BBL Cup Group Stage)

Newcastle Eagles go into tonight’s sold-out game against Manchester Giants at the Vertu Motors Arena knowing only a win can keep their hopes of qualifying for the BBL Cup quarter finals alive.

Report: Manchester Giants 92-86 Eagles

There has to be real concern for Newcastle Eagles and their head coach Ian MacLeod after his new-look roster slipped to their third consecutive defeat on the road in Manchester last night.
