Before Super League’s Magic Weekend returns to Newcastle, the Golden Point Podcast is joined by a man who has been involved in rugby league in the North East for most of his career.

Newcastle Thunder Chairman and Member of the 2021 Rugby League World Cup Organizing Committee Mick Hogan joins host Marc Bazeley and air sports rugby league expert Barrie McDermott on the panel for this episode.

Originally from Leigh, but firmly part of Newcastle’s rugby league scene, Hogan talks to us about what it means for the sport in both the city and the wider region to have Magic Weekend back in St James’ Park for the first time since 2018 .

We learn more about Championship club Thunder’s ambitions to be a Super League champion by 2030 and the growth of the community game in the Northeast.

In addition, the panel discusses the importance of the postponed Rugby League World Cup still prominent in the region next year and looks ahead to the standout matches at Magic Weekend.
