We are pleased to reveal our fixtures for the coming NFC North II season!
After pre-season scrimmages at home to Humber Warhawks on 13th March and away to the Knottingley Raiders on 27th March, the team will open their campaign by hosting Aberdeen Roughnecks at Ashington Rugby Club on Sunday 10th April 2016.
The Roughnecks are the first of 3 back to back home games in the opening month, with the fourth home fixture only broken up by an away trip (..by 20 miles!) down the road to Newcastle Vikings at Druid Park on Sunday 15h May 2016.
The Lightning will then hit the road with 3 visits to Scotland in 5 weeks, before a final home fixture on Sunday 7th August 2016 against the Newcastle Vikings and a final closing regular season game against Carlisle Sentinels on Sunday 14th August 2016.
