I can't imagine either Tinkler or Stubbins being associated with the Jets for too much longer. That's simply a guess, not something based on known facts or inside knowledge (of which I have none in this case)
Ah, AD, the good old Duke of Wellington. Used to be known as "Pub 5" in the annual Newcastle Uni pub crawl. Great watering hole!
Newcastle is a unique place for sports fans. The Jets and Knights share support for sure and the passion for both is real. Newcastle football fans are among the most faithful and passionate and loyal a bunch as I've ever encountered. I was once at an EPL game between Arsenal and Leeds. Arsenal were 2-0 up inside 20 minutes and that was the final score. The atmosphere was totally muted.
