B. BRAUN SHEFFIELD SHARKS V NEWCASTLE EAGLES

Date: Friday 25 October 2019
Time: 7:30pm
Venue: Ponds Forge
Competition: BBL Cup, North Group

Newcastle Eagles are out for revenge when they face B. Braun Sheffield Sharks on Friday, as it was the Sharks who knocked them off the top of the Cup North Standings when they met last Friday. Sheffield were able to edge the Toon side by just three points so it’s no doubt that Friday’s clash will be one you don’t want to miss.

Last five meetings: Sharks 4-1 Eagles
