Sheffield Pirtek Tigers face a revamped Newcastle side in their latest Premier Trophy test at Owlerton this Thursday (7.45pm). The Diamonds swooped to sign ex-Tiger George Stancl, Manuel Hauzinger and Christian Henry during the winter and they already have a superb away win under their belt from their recent trip to Berwick.

Tigers chief Neil Machin said: "Newcastle look very solid as a team and this is going to be a big test for us.
"They've shown good form so far this season and I know there is a lot of confidence within the camp so we cannot take anything for granted."

Tigers are unchanged from the side which brushed aside Berwick last Thursday which means Ben Wilson continues after recovering from knee ligament damage.
