Rocks prepare for third matchup with Eagles

After a two week break from BBL action, Rocks are back on the road to face Newcastle in their third matchup of the season on Friday night.


Rocks are yet to register a win against the Newcastle side this season after being defeated in their home opener and then falling to them 104-98 in OT just before the International window.


However, Vincent Lavandier will be looking to start his tenure with a win in his first game as head coach of the Rocks. Kieron Achara and Tadas Rinkunas also had strong performances against Eagles in their last matchup, each posting 20 points and 23 points respectively.  With a rested squad Rocks are ready for the challenge presented by Newcastle.


Last time out against Eagles Rocks struggled with the duo of  Rahmon Fletcher and Darius Defoe who combined for 50 points on the night. Three other Eagles’ players also finished in double figures meaning they have a lot of depth that Rocks will have to contend with on the night.


Rocks take on Newcastle Eagles at 7:30 PM at the Eagles Community Arena. You can watch the game live on
