Gateshead Thunder have rebranded as Newcastle Thunder, returning professional rugby league to the city for the first time since 1938.

As part of the change, Thunder have applied to Newcastle City Council to make Kingston Park their home ground.

They will now be known as the Newcastle Thunder.

The Rugby Football League has approved the name change.
